Health club wants to build 13 apartments

TWO outdoor tennis courts could be lost at Kings Health Club to make way for 13 new apartments, if planning permission is granted.
Long Port owns the site and is planning to start a major refurbishment of the club next year.
Kings director Steve Brehaut said the apartments, which would cost £5m. to build, were vital to help fund a major redevelopment of the club.
‘The residential development is essential to enable the significant financial investment into the club,’ he said.
‘Without this source of funding, the substantial refurbishment works planned for could not be financed.’
