AN INTERNATIONAL pizza chain has lodged a plan with council to re-purpose a former bakery site at Georgetown.
A development application has been lodged with Newcastle City Council for the site at 41 Georgetown Road.
Plans, which are currently on public exhibition, include a $150,000 renovation with the shop anticipated to open by late December.
The building has been used as a business from as early as 1981.
It housed a Henny Penny fast food outlet up until 2009, when it was converted into the Bakers of Georgetown bakery.
According to documents submitted with council the proposed trading hours for the pizza business will be 8am to 2am, potentially increasing late-night traffic and activity in the area.
“This will be the eighth store owned and operated by John Standret,” a Domino’s spokeswoman said.
“The store will create around 30 new jobs for locals, from pizza makers to delivery drivers.
“We look forward to bringing new food options to the area.”
The development application is open for submissions until November 11, 2018.
