Énergie has applied to Sheffield Council to change the use of the basement below Pizza Hut in High Street.

The firm wants to open a branch of its Fit4less gym, and plans to connect the space with the basement under Bonmarché next door.

According to the planning application, the gym would serve ‘the large student presence in the city centre and nearby residential areas including Park Hill and Burngreave’.

The application adds: “We are entirely confident this is the correct gym proposition in the correct location for the market we are looking to service. Thus offering vital facilities for what is currently a vastly unengaged population segment but one which the Government guidelines are striving to tackle.”
