A new health and wellness centre could make its home at the Gunners Arms Liquor Stax Bottle Shop, following the rejection of a gym intended for the site last year.
The development application for an OsteoStrong centre is recommended for approval by the City of Launceston council.
In October, the council rejected a proposal for an F45 gym to occupy the space to due concerns around noise, traffic, and opening hours.
However these are not expected to be an issue with the proposed OsteoStrong centre.
OsteoStrong is a membership-based health and wellness centre with a focus on musculoskeletal strength conditioning.
The programs are centred around four main pieces of equipment which are used under the supervision of a trained coach.
The centre would have a fitness area, hydro room, scan booth, two offices, a staff room, reception and sitting area, and shower and toilet facilities.
To achieve this, changes would include the removal of internal walls and closing off the existing drive-through area.
A ramp would be constructed on the southern elevation with an awning above it, and a 2.7-metre long, 2-metre high wall would be constructed to provide privacy from the outdoor deck area of the Gunners Arms Tavern.
The car park would also be reconfigured.
Operational hours would be traditional business hours, however the proponents are seeking a [ermit which would allow them to operate between 7.30am and 9pm.
There would be no loud music playing at the centre, just background level music.
A maximum of 10 clients would be onsite at any time.
The application was advertised for 14 days, with seven representations received.
Concerns were raised over issues such as the ornamental pear trees, signage, safety, and the site's heritage listing, however all were addressed.
The development application will be discussed at the council's meeting on February 20.
