Planning bid for “world class” sports performance institute in Harlow

Athletics / Sun 4th Oct 2020 at 11:32am

A PLANNING application for a world class sports performance institute has been submitted to Harlow Council.

The location is Baros House on Elizabeth Way in Harlow

The application is as follows: Change of use of an existing Class B8 business use premises to a Class E sports performance institute comprising boxing, gymnasium, weight training room, spinning & yoga fitness studio, conditioning, lab-test rooms, cardiovascular room and associated reception, offices, changing rooms & toilets.

The intent is to provide a private Elite level performance institute to accommodate not only the world champions that the applicant currently coaches and trains, but to also accommodate elite, world class athletes from other sports looking to improve their performance.

The sports training platform that the applicants have, together with the broadcasters that their athletes are signed with – Sky Sports/BT Sport/ Dazn/ESPN will enable them to raise awareness and focus positive attention for both the facility and the town; in their words this high profile Sports Institute would be ‘nothing short of phenomenal’.

There are no other specialised sports training facilities such as this within Europe. The facility would not be an “open to public” type of operation, not offering “walk-ins” for the public or “memberships”.

It might however employ 1-2 specialised trainers who may coach ‘private’ clientele outside of the applicant’s own specific athletes. The applicants are also passionate about the awareness of sport and health and performance and would look at some community work in perhaps a seminar type form, to educate not only on the areas of health and performance, but on how there are many various paths you can take into the sports industry.
