Birmingham City Council planners are being asked to consider allowing a change of the use of a retail unit in Longbridge town centre to accommodate a new gym.
Plans for a gym as part of a leisure complex including a cinema and restaurants on land adjacent to Smyths toys were approved in 2017 but never came to fruition when St Modwen were unable to secure tenants for the complex.
Instead, developers applied to build a discount supermarket on the site and in May 2018 the plans were approved.
New gym plans
However, now PureGym are seeking permission to change the use of an existing empty retail unit – between Boots and Smyths – to accommodate a gym over two floors.
PureGym provide customers with up to date facilities and equipment in 24 hour gyms at a low cost with no contract. The closest existing PureGym facilities are at Maypole and Bromsgrove.
