Plans for a new purpose-built gymnasium and training area at Timperley Amateur Boxing Club have been approved.

The new space – which has been given the green light by owner Trafford Council – includes a 16ft boxing ring, a practice floor space, viewing areas for the public and parents, a weights area and fitness room, restrooms and changing rooms.

The club, which is a registered charity, is located at the Broomwood Community Wellbeing Center in Timperley.

Permission was originally granted in 2018, with adjustments requested in 2020, but has since expired.
