Plans are underway to convert a retail unit into a personal training studio near Wrexham town centre.
Proposals have been submitted to Wrexham Council to transform the Rhosnesni Lane retail unit into a space for personal trainers to work with clients primarily on a one-to-one basis.
The studio would be open seven days a week if plans materialize.
According to the claimants, the unit is currently being used as a warehouse by a charity.
The changes they hope to make are outlined in the development application form submitted to council, which states: “We would like to convert the current retail unit into a personal training studio.
“We plan to open Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We don’t expect there to be more than six cars in our car park at any one time, even that we believe will be rare. We work one-on-one with clients spread throughout the daytime.
“Due to the nature of what we are doing, there won’t be a lot of noise, unlike an average commercial gym, but we will have a PA system in place for background music.
“The owner assured us there were no waste or drainage issues.”
The applicant clarifies that neighboring businesses have already been consulted on the plans and that there will be no increase in waste from the site, which would retain the current toilet and sink – both located at the rear of the building with drainage.
They added: “The only external changes will be a fresh coat of paint and a new sign up front.
“Internally, we plan to put two stud walls and paint all the walls.”
Parking spaces are already available on the site and no change of highway would be necessary as a result of the proposed change of use.
Wrexham Council’s planning committee will make a decision on the application at a later date.
