Fitness fans will be able to exercise at any time of day or night soon.

A new 24-hour gym has been given planning permission to open at Greenbridge retail Park in east Swindon by planners at the borough council.

The Gym Ltd will be allowed to operate form one of the park's units previously occupied by Office Outlet facing Garrard Way.

The application by the company said the gym will not be a major attraction for people from far away, bringing more traffic to the site, rather it will be used by those who live and work in the area: "We work on the basis of providing facilities which are accessible and available to those living and working close to the unit. It aims to provide exercise facilities which can be used on a day to day basis, for those looking for the convenience of a health and fitness facility close to their home or place of work as part of a regular routine. We do not include facilities such as swimming pools, saunas or cafes,

which draw people from a wider area and provide a longer duration of visit."

Another budget gym company Simply Gym, which is to open a branch in Eldene in May had objected.
