A PIZZA delivery business wants to stay open for longer, according to city council documents.

Caprinos Pizza, in Cowley Road, has applied to stay open until 3am on Friday and Saturday nights. It also wants permission to stay open until midnight on every other day.

Its owner states: "I would like to open my shop a little longer. Most businesses on Cowley Road are open until late so I wanted to see how it goes if I can get an increase in my sales so I can at least cover all my expenses. All measures are in place for public safety."

The application will be decided within weeks.
