A TAKEAWAY in Portsmouth has been refused permission to stay open until the early hours.

Papa John’s in London Road, Hilsea, had put in a planning application to be open from 7am till 1am, Sunday to Thursday and 7am till 3am on Fridays and Saturday.

But Portsmouth City Council has refused the application saying it would result in an ‘unacceptable impact on the amenities of the neighbouring residents in terms of increased noise and disturbance at unsociable hours.’

Papa John’s is open from 11am until 11pm.
