Pizza store proposal meets with opposition
Plans to open a takeaway pizza store at 233 West St, Umina, have met with six written objections.
The proposal from Domino's Pizza is open for public comment until October 4.
One objector said: "I oppose this development.
"We don't need another Domino's.
"I would love a smoothie/juice bar with some fresh salads."
Another said: "I object to another fast food business in Umina.
"We already have two pizza shops, a McDonalds and a range of other fast food outlets.
"The percentage of obese people on the Coast is nearly one and a half times that of the State average of 19.5 percent.
"The Central Coast has 28 percent of the population who are obese.
"Fast food is causing an obesity epidemic.
"Council should protect the community and not allow this business to enter the community.
"They will only add to the problems people are already facing."
The shop would open extended hours from shop four and five at 233 West St, which are currently vacant.
Proposed trading hours are from 8am up to 2am seven days a week including public holidays.
The development application is seeking consent to internally fit out the shop with a front counter, customer lobby area, 10 signs on the frontage and installation of pizza ovens, cold room and other equipment required for pizza production.
It includes minor excavation works to install a grease interceptor to the rear of the building.
