A former Suffolk high street bank could become a Domino's pizza takeaway.

DPSK Limited, the company who operate Domino's pizza chain, has applied for permission to change the use of the premises from a bank to a hot food takeaway.

The 10-12 High Street site was previously occupied by Barclays, which closed in November 2018.

If approved by West Suffolk Council, the applicant suggests changing the use of the ground floor to a hot food takeaway, as well as the installation of extraction equipment and external alterations.

The planning statement adds: "The proposed change of use will make a positive use as a commercial unit within a town centre and support the vitality and viability of the area by reintroducing an active use at the site."

It also states that the site will generate a "good" level of footfall and provide job opportunities for local residents.

It is not the first time that the pizza chain has proposed opening in a former branch of Barclays bank. It submitted similar plans in Crowthorne, Berkshire, in August last year.
