A CONTROVERSIAL pizza takeaway is gearing up to open its doors in Marlow next month.

Domino's Pizza, which is moving in to the empty Blockbuster premises on West Street, has confirmed it will deliver its first pizzas in April.

The plans drew fierce criticism from residents and town societies, with complaints over parking problems and the detrimental impact of a takeaway in the largely traditional surroundings.

Marlow Society Chairman Martin Blunkell was one of a number of opponents expressing concerns over parking, and said a fast food shop would detract from the shopping quality of one of Marlow's two main streets.

The takeway, which was approved by planners at Wycombe District Council in October, will create around 20 jobs.

Perhaps they might try to fit in and be a little different to others in the chain.... why not a Marlow special pizza? One with a stiff upper crust and lots of swans in it?

What's controversial about it? It's a pizza take away for gods sake not a brothel
They have a branch in Henley, don't think anybody objects to that.
I'm more concerned that the other half of the premises looks like being another bookies.
Another one of those we don't need.

This is not controversial at all. It is simply snobbery from the residents once again. They have resisted to anything and everything except nimbyism.

Not all residents i'd like to point out.... a select few who ALWAYS give Marlow a bad name.

In fact I think the majority of residents in Marlow probably think it is better than an empty premises. As previous posts have suggested it's the vocal minority who oppose these things. Makes for lazy journalism BFP.
