A PIZZA takeaway could replace an Amersham menswear shop that's set to close this month.

Plans to convert Roberts Menswear in Hill Avenue into a hot food takeaway have been submitted to Chiltern District Council this week.

Forms sent to the council as part of the application state the planned shop would sell pizzas.

If given planning approval the new shop would be open from 11am-11pm every day and employ four full time and six part time members of staff.

Roberts Menswear, which has been in the town since the 1960s, is due to close later this month.

Chiltern District Council is likely to rule on whether to grant planning permission at the end of September.

I'm going to be disappointed if this new establishment isn't selling dessert pizzas like the one chosen for this file photo. Perhaps the margherita ones come in to pricey for the BFP?

Genuine shame that a traditional clothes shop is going - but that is a sign of the times we now all get our clothes on line or in supermalls.

Better a pizza joint that employs people than an empty shop for hoodies to get up to no good in!
