A COUNCILLOR is to boycott one of his favourite takeaway pizza outlets until it “starts respecting its neighbours”.

Colchester councillor Darius Laws (Con) has raised concerns to Domino’s in North Station Road.

He said residents in nearby Causton Road and Albert Street are suffering with noisy and speedy delivery drivers whizzing up and down.

He has vowed not to touch another Domino’s pizza until something is done.

He said: “I have asked the licensing officers to pop in and have a conversation with them. That was some weeks ago.

“It’s not affecting all residents but it is bothering the people who live nearby.

“Unfortunately the staff are driving at some speed, it would be easier if they had moped out the front

but they have cars to deliver the pizza.”

He has also asked Colchester MP Will Quince to contact the chief executive of Domino’s.

Mr Laws said: “Every business in an area where there are immediate residential properties has a responsibility to their neighbours.

“We will see what comes of it but we in this household will not be having any Domino’s until the situation has improved.”

Residents in Causton Road have also called for a ban on lorries passing through, as they claim they are waking children and shaking houses.

Heavy lorries are a persistent nuisance, including Tesco lorries which supply the One Stop shop in North Station Road.

Rhiannon Berriman, a spokesperson for Domino’s commented: “We would like to apologise to our neighbours for any inconvenience caused. Being a good neighbour is important to us and we have taken this opportunity to remind our delivery drivers to act responsibly at all times in accordance with Domino’s safe driving policy.”
