A planning application has been submitted to Fife Council by SAE Fitness Service Ltd to transform part of the WeatherMac site on Auchterderran Road to turn part of the area into a Crossfit Gym.
The application (16/03861/FULL) is seeking a change of use from an industrial unit to a Gymnasium/fitness Centre (class 11). Unit 4 is marked for the development which was in prior use by AirSoft who vacated the premises back in April 2015.
Pre-application advice has been provided by the planning authority:
“Over recent years it is not uncommon for this type of application to be approved within business parks and industrial areas and can be treated as an appropriate ancillary service. If you can show the property has been marketed appropriately, provide adequate information on numbers of staff and potential visitors, and provide adequate parking around the site which does not prejudice neighbouring uses then it is likely that the proposed use could be supported”
The applicant envisions that the area can expect a maximum number of 120 visitors spread across 5 sessions throughout the day (24 visitors per session). Proposed opening hours will be early morning from 6am – 8am then closed until 5pm until 8:30pm, Monday to Friday, on Saturday the facilities will be available between 7am until noon.
Facilities will feature:
- Olympic Weight Lifting
- Circuit training
- Static Rowing
- Static Cycling
- Utilise open area for general fitness routines
Initially, the development is only proposing one full-time position with scope for additional part-time posts in the future. Self-employed fitness coaches will be used initially to help run classes.
