Community rallies round Bodycare Gym owner in bid to keep it open

“If the proposed plans were to be agreed what message does this send to the community about the value of staying fit and healthy?

“With a 500-member club, employing 15 staff, who collectively raised in excess of £30,000 for local charities in recent years, Bodycare is a business Castle Point should proud of, not one it is set to “bulldoze”.

“Many of Bodycare’s members are retired, they walk to the club and really enjoy their workouts.

“Is it morally responsible to take this facility away from them? Bodycare and the services it offers is the very essence of a great residential amenity and along with all who use the club, should be protected from the power of the property developers pound.”

The plans are proposed for 191 to 193 High Road, Benfleet, which currently homes Image Flooring and Bodycare gym, as well as flats on the first floor.

The plush plans include a roof garden as well as a balcony for every flat.
