Vacant units on the Tuam road to become new gym

Galway City Council has approved plans to convert vacant retail units on the Tuam Road into a new gym.

Planning permission has been granted to Lane Pension Trust to change the approved use of units 10 & 11 at Tuam Road Retail Centre from warehousing, retail, light industrial, and car showrooms to a gym and fitness studio.

The application applies to the first floor of this commercial building, the ground floor of which is currently occupied by ‘Finline Furniture’.

It’s intended that the first floor will be converted from its current state into two open plan gym areas, along with toilets and other ancillary facilities.

The space in question was previously occupied by the GRETB, which received temporary permission to vary its use from commercial to educational back in 2007.

These units make up part of a larger building complex at the Tuam Road Retail Centre which is served by roughly 90 communal parking spaces to the front and rear of the building.

Galway City Council granted planning permission for the new fitness studio with three conditions attached.

No objections or other third party submissions were made to the council concerning this development.
