News: 27 June 2017Gymnastics club rolls back into action

A Cardiff-based gymnastics club is one step closer to securing a new home thanks to support from our Cardiff team.

Cardiff Olympic Gymnastics, a local charity which provides gymnastics coaching for children and young people of all ages and abilities, has received planning permission for a new base at Argyle Way, Cardiff.

Our team based in Cardiff provided planning and design advice and submitted a change of use application to The City of Cardiff Council on behalf of the charity.

The change of use application, which was approved last week by the Council, will see a vacant auto body repair and manufacturing facility transformed into a fantastic new centre for the growing club.

Cardiff Olympic Gymnastics aims to promote community participation in health recreation through the provision of coaching and facilities for amateur artistic gymnastics. The club currently employs six coaches, but this could be increased to ten following the recent planning success.

Cai Parry, Planner, said: “The Cardiff Olympic Gymnastics team does a fantastic amount of work in the community and the recent consent will hopefully provide the club with a permanent home. We are always eager to support the local community wherever we can and hopefully the support we have provided here will help the club to continue to provide their fantastic services in the area.”

Joely Griffiths, Cardiff Olympic Gymnastics, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the support that has been provided by Barton Willmore in delivering this project. This is something we are very thankful for and we look forward to showing their Cardiff team around the new facility when it is up and running.”
