Revolution Fitness

Hotel & Leisure

Revolution Fitness currently operate a highly successful 24 hour fitness club in Malvern. Due to rapid growth in membership and the success of the existing Malvern club, our client wished to expand their business and open a second gym in Worcester. Following an extensive search of suitable properties in the area, a 600sqm office building on the edge of Worcester City Centre was identified as an ideal opportunity.

Firstplan secured planning permission for change of use from office (Class B1) to gymnasium (Class D2). Working to the client’s tight timescale, Firstplan submitted a robust Sequential Assessment and response to County Highway’s to overcome initial policy and parking concerns from the Council, and successfully secured permission within four weeks of submitting the application.

The new gym opened in February 2017.
