The project involved the re-development of the existing Cheltenham Ladies College Sports Centre site.
- Malvern Road, Cheltenham
- Planning Consultant
In 2018, Cheltenham Ladies’ College opened a new state-of-the-art Health and Fitness Centre, expanding facilities to include a combined offering of 50m pool, new sports hall, multi-purpose activity spaces, dance studio, 5 squash courts, fitness gym, as well and floodlit outdoor netball and hockey pitches.
The site is located within the Central Conservation area in close proximity to listed and local listed buildings. The main sports field adjoins existing residential properties that back onto the site.
Both the new build elements and floodlighting met with opposition from the settled community.
Evans Jones acted as lead Planning Consultant securing full planning permission for the expanded health and fitness centre including bespoke retractable floodlighting to the hockey pitch.
