Proposed gym complies with planning guidelines
Club Umina wants to build a gymnasium in the south western corner of the crown land it leases at its site at Carawa and Melbourne Sts, Umina.
The proposed gymnasium would have ground floor gymnasium with separate male and female amenities, reception area, lounge and a cafe.
Mezzanine gym space is also proposed with staff amenities and an office also located at this level.
A maximum of five staff would be employed with a maximum of 30 clients accommodated at any one time. It would operate between 6am and 9pm seven days a week.
The club would add another 18 car spaces and also proposes to construct a green keepers shed for use in conjunction with the existing three bowling greens and to construct a new access driveway from the public carpark to the south of the site.
Town planners Boston Blyth Fleming wrote a statement supporting the application, saying that the gym was permissible and satisfied the relevant planning guidelines.
The proposal was open for public comment until September 22 and has already received one submission suggesting shade trees should be included around this new building.
"The Peninsula has lost too many trees resulting in a higher urban heat island effect across our area.
"Any shade for the future would be greatly appreciated by the users, owners and the locals,'' the submission reads.
