Nimbyism constitutes valid grounds for opposition. I favour nuclear power, I have no objection to brothels, I respect the need for fire engines and their concomitant sirens -- but please, please, not in my back yard. Does this pizza joint have a valid reason for not locating its takeaway half a mile south on Tower Bridge Road, which is already a high-density shopping district?

"Does this pizza joint have a valid reason for not locating its takeaway half a mile south on Tower Bridge Road"

I think so Bev.

The new place will be walking distance from the many flats (North) on Tooley St and Shad Thames who currently do not have a takeaway pizza place. The Papa folks have obviously done their home work and chosen NOT to go 1/2 a mile south into more densely populated takeaway territory.

Not to be rude to you, but your posts suggest that you are a quintessential nimby.

Those "concomitant sirens" - would you prefer them switched off if the emergency vehicle was attending your call?

the facebook thing is ridiculous...and it has 4 members,probably all the same person. the suggestion that papa johns moves further south (where all the other cheap an nasty shops are) is even more stupid. they are going for a more affluent market hence the specific choice of site no doubt. anyway as i said before they do great pizzas and i for one will use them

This may be a forlorn hope, but perhaps we could have an exchange of differing views on this subject without being rude or sneering.

Bev is perfectly entitled to object to this application if she chooses, but I'd certainly be interested in her response to Boss Street Bloke's questions on the previous page asking about the basis of some of the claims in her original post.

Twice now I've seen ads for this place. Each time I've gone to their website only to discover they don't deliver. Good luck to them. As for noise etc, I doubt that will be a problem because:

1. Surely most orders will be ordered over the phone and then delivered.
2. These types of shops rarely open before 11am and they receive their deliveries during opening hours.
3. It is bound to be franchised, meaning the owner will be keen to keep his neighbours happy.

At least it's not going to be another of those '15 bits of chicken for 99p' outlets!

I look forward to trying Papa's food.

A nuclear powered pizza parlour/brothel.As a business concept that would surely win Dragons' den next time round.

I'd never actually heard of Papa John's are they good? Alas, I tend to avoid pizza on the calorie front despite staring at them longingly. Maybe I'll make an exception for them.

I'd welcome them here as all the pizza companies around here are that I've used so far are rubbish. I used Papa John's when i lived in Canary Wharf (they delivered from All Saints), and thought they were great. This would literally be in my back yard, and I don't mind.

a bit far away from me
but slightly off topic
