Boxing gym plan revealed

Imaginative plans for a boxing club and gym above Helensburgh Central railway station have been revealed.

The former station manager’s flat, owned by Network Rail, has been empty for many years and fell into disrepair.

Now Stuart Allan wants to convert it into ‘a traditional boxing/martial arts gym’, with changing room, a shower room, office, small store and an open-plan training area.

No external or structural changes would be made to the B-listed building, period fireplaces would be boxed in and preserved and the original front door would also be kept and refurbished.

Details of the planning application are available here and the listed building application is here. The reference numbers on are 13/01337/PP  and 3/01336/LIB
