Plans for new boxing gym in Weymouth

SUPPORT is being offered for plans to turn a Weymouth workshop and store into a boxing club and gym.

Ward councillor Jon Orrell, the Weymouth Civic Society and the town council have all backed the change of use plans for the building on the corner of Crescent Street and Stanley Street.

KN Boxing & Fitness say that if the application is approved by Dorset Council it would support two full-time jobs with the gym open throughout the week from 7am until 9pm. 

The boxing area would be on the ground floor with a fitness studio above.

The building has been the subject of previous applications for conversion to houses or flats, but these were rejected.
