PLANS to build an outdoor spa garden with a sauna and hydro-pool at an Ellesmere Port gym have been approved.

David Lloyd Leisure Club, located on Stanney Lane at Cheshire Oaks, holds a gym, racquets facilities, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a range of fitness classes.

On Monday (November 13) plans which were submitted to Cheshire West and Chester Council in September to extend the facilities to build an outdoor spa garden were approved.

The Design and Access Statement, submitted by Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson Limited, states: "The club currently does not offer a spa garden feature and has limited spa facilities. There have been considerable requests for an improvement to the facilities and this proposal aims to address these requests.

"It is proposed to build a new internal and external spa facility in close proximity to the existing pool hall. The area chosen for the spa extension is an existing service area and outdoor terrace."

It continues: "The location of the new extension has been designed to flow from existing facilities as well as to utilise the space in an efficient manner to meet the clients accommodation brief.

"In response to these requirements, the extension has been positioned to the South of the existing building since this side provides access from the existing indoor pool.

"The spa garden will be positioned to the South of the club to maximise sun exposure throughout the day. In order to accommodate the proposed design, some small existing trees will be removed."
