Pizza takeaway Papa John’s has got the go-ahead to open in Kirkcaldy, with the promise of up to 30 jobs.

The company got the green light at a meeting of Fife Council’s central area planning committee today.

It will now move into one of three units being built on the grounds of the former Plumb Centre on Nicol Street.

Planners, however, recommended approval.
