Plans have been submitted to turn an empty shop into a pizza takeaway.

Papa John’s Ltd, a pizza company, have submitted plans to Braintree Council to change the signs at the former Blockbuster store in Rayne Road, Braintree.

It is understood that the firm does not have to apply for a change of use because the building already has planning permission for a retail store.
