A NEW health centre is set to be built at Phyllis Court Club in Henley, despite opposition from neighbouring residents.
South Oxfordshire District Council has granted planning permission for the two-storey complex with a gym and swimming pool which will be built on the club’s existing visitor car park and tennis courts.
New floodlit tennis courts will be built next door and the car park will be extended.
Barry Hardman, chairman of the private members’ club, said: “The permission allows for a low-profile, two-storey building with large, glazed areas to allow maximum use of natural light, together with a timber finish to blend into the surrounding woodland.
“The facilities will include a 20m swimming pool, heat rooms (sauna, steam, jacuzzi), a gymnasium, aerobics suite, juice bar and well-appointed changing rooms, all located within the 920sqm floor area. It is anticipated that building work could commence towards the middle of next year with construction taking 14 months to complete.”
