■ Bfit, 8 Garden Road,
‘BFit’ is a class only based gymnasium that operates classes in the early morning and evening and is closed during normal business hours. They are usually located within semi industrial areas with residential houses nearby.
‘Bfit’premises rely on shared car parking for their members and never have the car parking supply to cater for all the members during class times. This can be of concern for nearby business’ and residents who also rely on shared car parking to accommodate visitors and customers.
As part of any gym application we appoint a dedicated traffic engineer to identify the car parking supply and demand around the premises so we can accurately forecast the extent of an issue car parking will be around the premises. This dedicated traffic report is lodged with the town planning application in a proactive approach to the likely objections from the public on based on car parking. This approach is well received by Council and despite the application receiving a number of objections it was approved in January 2022.
