Indoor Sports & Recreation


Sports centres, dance studios and recreational clubs are making a splash in the world of property investment. Not only do they provide a great hub for communities to come together but can also significantly boost the value of their surrounding properties by maximising returns - so why not jump on board?

  • Signage
  • Increased traffic

What are the Council Requirements relevant to my Application? 
Although each application will be different, common Council requirements to consider when applying for a Dance Studio / Indoor Sports & Recreation Centre includes: 

Hours of Operation

Dance Studios / Indoor Sports & Recreation Centres usually close late so enthusiastic clients can access the facility outside of the 9-5 working day. Depending on the location of your property, opening hours could have a negative impact on surrounding residents which may raise cause for complaint. How can these negative impacts such as noise or increased traffic be mitigated to reduce the risk of objection from the neighbours? Ultimate Planning Solutions has experience in meeting these concerns and finding solutions to keep everyone happy and your business up and running.

Business Operations

Council require in depth details when considering applications for a Dance Studio or Indoor Sports & Recreation Centre. Do you have a regular timetable, do you accept walk-ins or bookings only? Will outdoor spaces be used for classess? Are there retail opportunities within the operation of your Dance Studio / Indoor Sports & Recreation Centre? Make sure all the boxes are ticked for your application by talking to the team at Ultimate Planning Solutions to ensure processing of your application is as efficient as possible.

Carparking Requirements

Depending on the location of your property your business will be subject to off street carparking requirements for your clients. Do you know how to calculate the parking requirements for your property based upon the location, use and size of your business? Be sure you are meeting all Council requirements and allow Ultimate Planning Solutions to take the guesswork out of your development application.

We can not speak highly enough of the service that we received with Chris at Ultimate Planning Solutions. We honestly could have not done what we did without his assistance, holding our hands throughout the entire process. Chris would explain things so easily to understand what we needed to know throughout the process. No question was ever too much trouble. Chris was always available on the phone and answered emails so quickly. Communication was incredible and we cannot recommend them more highly for your project. If you are looking for a town planner, you will be so happy you chose Ultimate Planning Solutions. We cannot thank you enough. - Heidi Cuschieri
