PLANS for a new personal training and fitness facility in Barrhead have been submitted to the council.

It comes after a planning application to change a former shop on 178 Main Street into a sports centre was validated by the local authority on Thursday, September 21.

The applicant hopes to change the site and create an area for "personal training, community group training, boxing, sports performance, and sports recovery".

According to the proposal, the space would be fitted out with the appropriate training kit along with suitable changing and washing facilities.

It is understood the building was most recently used as a post office and a newsagent.

East Renfrewshire Council bosses are yet to approve or reject the plans.
