24-hour gym in Yanchep gets conditional approval from City of Wanneroo

A 24-HOUR gym in Yanchep has received conditional development approval from the City of Wanneroo.

The council unanimously approved John Zapfiropoulos’s application for the recreation centre at 3 Avon Road, which is owned by Topfield Holdings.

At the November 7 briefing session, Pas Bracone said the City received submissions and a 64-signature petition objecting to the proposal during public consultation.

Mr Bracone said the applicant had modified the plans, with some modifications to address the concerns raised in submissions, including moving the gym space away from the neighbour’s boundary.

He said they had added two parking bays and an acoustic report addressed noise concerns

“Noise should not be a major concern from this property,” he said.

“There are noise regulations that every property needs to comply with; environmental health officers will deal with any noise complaints should they arise.”

Mr Bracone said speaker systems should be mounted on a backing board while doors and windows would have to remain closed at all times, only opening as people enter and exit.

Councillor Linda Aitken, who raised concerns about the impact it would have on neighbouring residents at the November 7 briefing, supported the recommendation to approve at the November 14 meeting.

“The conditions will help the local people living nearby,” she said.

One of the 13 conditions of approval restricted the number of people at the Snap Fitness gym at any one time to 40.
