Armley takeaway applies for 4am weekend closing time

The owner of a hot food takeaway in Armley has applied to extend its opening hours until 4am on weekends.

Applicant Feras Hmaidi Jalout runs Papa Gino’s on Branch Road and wants to open late to serve customers he says will be ordering primarily online.

Mr Jalout wants to open from Mondays to Thursdays from 8am to 2pm and Fridays to Sundays – including bank holidays – from 8am to 4am.

He currently has planning permission to open from Monday to Saturday 8am-11.30pm and 7pm-11pm on Sundays. The initial planning consent was granted in 2003 and Mr Jalout argues that the takeaway industry has changed since then.

The application states: “The condition for opening times was discharged when the service industry landscape and the social context was different.

“The running of take aways has changed massively in the past decade and most take aways need to open late to be able to serve customers on services such as Just Eat and Uber Eats into early hours.

“Since taking over the business earlier this year, the new lease owner is finding it difficult to compete without being able to open later than the previous condition. As such he would like to propose new opening times.

“As it is a take away the establishment will not generate noise via patrons sitting inside to eat and will not be playing any music that could disturb residents. The main visitors are expected to be delivery drivers who will are not going to create any disturbance to nearby residents.”
