Former Pizza Hut in Boston could become shops, flats

Pizza Hut in Boston

The application form submitted to Boston Borough Council for the site in West Street lists the applicant as J. Parvez

A developer has applied for planning permission to covert the former Pizza Hut restaurant in Boston into three commercial or shop units on the ground floor and four flats on the two floors above.

The application form submitted to Boston Borough Council for the site in West Street lists the applicant as J. Parvez.

Plans show that two of the ground floor units would be accessed by the existing doors on West Street, with a new access for the remaining unit to be installed on the side of the adjacent to Wickes. The flats would also be accessed from street level.

The 80-covers restaurant was purpose-built for Pizza Hut which closed the premises in November 2018. Pizza Hut issued this statement prior to the closure: We continually evaluate the location of our restaurants to ensure they are in the best possible areas to meet consumer demand and have decided to close our restaurant in Boston in November this year [2018].

We still have a strong presence in the area with a very popular and refurbished Hut in Skegness where our customers can continue to enjoy their favourite pizzas. Our team members have been informed and are currently in discussions about relocation to other restaurants in the local area.

The freehold of the property was reportedly bought from Threadneedle Property Unit Trust which owns the nearby Wickes retail warehouse, in late 2021. Pizza Hut Restaurants announced the closure of 28 of its restaurants nationally in a Company Voluntary Arrangement approved by creditors in 2020, with more than 200 restaurants remaining open.

Pizza Hut was founded by Dan and Frank Carney in Kansas, USA, in 1958 and the UK’s first Pizza Hut opened in Islington, London, in 1973. Several former Pizza Hut restaurants have become Taco-Bell restaurants and drive-throughs, including the one in Nettleham Road, Lincoln.
