Residents object to plans for gym in grounds of Harlow Cricket Club

News / Sun 18th Sep 2022 at 09:47am

A PROPOSAL for an outdoor gym in the grounds of Harlow Cricket Club is set to go before the planning committee.

The proposal seeks to erect a fabric shelter and place a metal storage container on the site,
to facilitate the use of part of the site as an outdoor gymnasium.

The fabric shelter and storage container would be stored within the south of the site. The
storage container would be located approximately 5 metres away from the rear garden of no.
45 Chippingfield, with the fabric shelter located approximately 22 metres away.

Summary of Representations Received

  • Development will result in graffiti
  • Development will result in pest control and overgrowth management issues for
  • The marigold trust holds the field for use of residents of Chippingfield, not for the use
    of the general public.
  • The increased noise of moving equipment and people encouraging each other on is
    yet more disruption to the area. Many people use gyms before going to work and
    after coming home. What times will this container be in use?
  • Will the parking be behind the two houses backing on to the field, thus increasing
    disturbance and pollution for the residents?
  • Where will users park if the vehicle gate is closed, as there is already limited space
    for parking on the bend adjacent to the entrance.

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday September 27th at 7.30pm.

I bet the people that are complaining are overweight and sitting on their fat behinds all day long anyway. Ideal people to actually use the outdoor gym

It is possible to construct a permanent outdoor gym without the need for storage containers and it could be placed away from road access and away from residents. Why not do this?
