A Launceston bottleshop is set to be converted into a gym as part of a $60,000 proposal.
The development application, lodged with City of Launceston council, would see the Liquor Stax drive-through bottleshop at the Gunners Arms Tavern converted into an F45 gym.
Under the proposal, the internal walls would be removed and the drive-through area enclosed.
A 19 square metre extension of the southern facade of the building would be constructed to create an entry and waiting area. Toilets, showers and storage areas would also be built.
Vehicle access will be provided by the existing car park on the southern side of the building, with three new spaces being created.
IN OTHER NEWS:
The application said the proposal was likely to reduce traffic at the Lawrence Street access because there would no longer be a drive-thru bottle shop using it. About 110 traffic movements are expected to occur as a result.
F45 studios typically hold classes in the early morning and evening but closed throughout the day.
It is proposed the gym would operate from 5am until 10am from Monday until Saturday, 4pm until 8pm from Monday until Friday and would be open from 8am until 10am on Sunday.
Each class runs for up to an hour, but mostly 45 minutes.
Depending on class sizes, typically two or three staff would be in attendance at each class, with about 27 participants.
The development application is open for comment through the City of Launceston Council until Monday, September 9.
