Plans for new fe­male gym

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

A NEW gym cater­ing pri­mar­ily for women could be built next to a Bolton coun­cil hous­ing es­tate.

The va­cant land off Brown­low Way in Hal­li­well was last home to a for­mer mill build­ing.

A pro­posal to build small “light in­dus­trial” units in Top­ping Street to­gether with a lo­cal com­mu­nity gym fa­cil­ity has now been re­vealed by the landown­ers.

They de­cided the most suit­able use for the site was some form of com­mer­cial devel­op­ment, ac­cord­ing to the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion, and be­lieve that their pro­posal is a re­sponse to lo­cal de­mand.

It said: “The gym­na­sium is to cater pri­mar­ily for lo­cal fe­male res­i­dents of the sur­round­ing area.”

Town hall plan­ners are due to de­cide the out­come of the ap­pli­ca­tion by March.
