Gym extension approved by council
A 24-HOUR gym at the Orion Springfield Central shopping precinct has
received council approval to expand its facilities.
Planning and Development Committee Chairperson Councillor Paul Tully
said the company planned to extend into the neighbouring vacant
"At present, the Temple Health and Fitness Centre has 230m2 of floor
space and developing the neighbouring lot would give them a further
106m2 of floor space.
"This 24-hour gym already provides healthy options to local residents
and extra space potentially means there is adequate room for more
equipment or classes.
"Clients also can use Orion Springfield Central's 2,000 free car
parking spaces, which offers more convenience and safety for all who
attend the health facility," Cr Tully said.
Division 1 Councillor David Morrison said the expansion would not only
benefit the business but local residents.
"Springfield Central is a suburb that already promotes healthy living
and having a 24-hour gym with more to offer, means that more members
of the community can improve their fitness."
