Plans for new pizzeria in Chichester city centre

A new pizzeria could be coming to Chichester city centre if plans make the cut.

Chichester District Council’s planning team received plans this week which seek permission for a change of use to a building in Crane Street.

The building, formerly home to betting shop William Hill, could become a takeaway pizza parlour if plans are given the green light.

Following news that sourdough pizza restaurant Franco Manco had plans to open in South Street, readers of this newspaper kicked back at the plans with many saying there were already ‘too many’ pizza restaurants in the city.

Olly Thom suggested the city was already home to ‘too many pizzerias’ and listed: Pizza Express; Prezzo; ASK; Zizzi; Wildwood; Papa John's; Domino's; and the Pizza Rebellion machine by the railway station.

He said: “Not sure if Chi needs another pizza place?”
