Burnley health club plans approved
9:52am Saturday 29th March 2014 in News
PLANS for a health and fitness club as part of a major new leisure development in Burnley have been approved.
Jon Wright, of Xercise4Less, will turn a vacant town centre office block at Kingsway House, in Kingsway, into a gym.
No objections were received in relation to the development, which could create up to 15 jobs.
In a planning statement, the firm said: “Changing, WC and shower facilities are provided for all including separate male and female disabled facilities within the changing room areas. A separate women's only gym area is also provided.”
Granting permission, a Burnley Council planning officer said: “The National Planning Policy Framework sets a presumption in favour of sustainable development and encourages development that contributes to the vitality of centres.”
In 2012, proposals were approved for a 126-bedroom student village on the same site, backed by East Lancashire Regeneration Ltd.
