An application has been made to open an Anytime Fitness gym at the new Thamesmead development on the former Tavy Bridge site.
Permission for a gym is not needed, though what is required is approval if opening past 11pm.
The application states “the Proposed Development seeks approval of the unrestricted operation of the Site as a gymnasium (Use Class E(d)) for 24 hours, 7 days a week.”
The exact site is within units 7 – 8 Kestrel Court which sits between Cygnet Square and Harrow Manorway.
The planning application manages to get the town wrong as does their own website. It’s in Thamesmead. Is it ignorance? Ashamed of being in Thamesmead so trying to rebrand? Bit weird.
With 525 homes on their doorstep and Binsey Walk coming next door plus new towers near Abbey Wood station, operators will hope for a fair amount of foot traffic.
However other major nearby sites are vacant and look set to remain so for some time. Parking will be an issue given no car park exists alongside.
Anytime Fitness currently have gyms on Bexleyheath, Woolwich and Charlton amongst many others in London and beyond.
