Gym gets go-ahead at last

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A 24-HOUR gym will open on Stir­ling High­way in Clare­mont after coun­cil­lors agreed that Snap Fit­ness owner Amar Pa­tel’s changes to his orig­i­nal ap­pli­ca­tion were suf­fi­cient.

Mr Pa­tel said there would be 30 car bays and peo­ple risked hav­ing their mem­ber­ships re­voked if they did not stick to the gym’s strict park­ing pol­icy.

But Cr Chris Mews said the park­ing pro­vi­sion was “grossly in­ad­e­quate”.

Clare­mont re­jected Mr Pa­tel’s change of use re­quest at 301 Stir­ling High­way in April but the Plan­ning Min­is­ter over­ruled the decision.

It paved the way for the gym owner to sub­mit a de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion for the business.

“Park­ing has been the sub­ject of con­cerns from res­i­dents,” Mr Pa­tel said.

“We have 11 gyms and have had no com­plaints from res­i­dents or coun­cils.”

Cr Jill Goetze said noise and park­ing con­cerns had been dealt with in the new ap­pli­ca­tion.
