ANOTHER 24-hour gym looks set to open in Colchester.

Anytime Fitness has submitted plans to covert an office in Haven Road, the Hythe, into the fitness facility.

If given the go-ahead by Colchester Council it would be the third 24-hour gym in the town.

The newest gym would have around six staff members, according to information submitted with the planning application.

The gym would be taken on by a franchisee.

If planning permission is granted, the gym is likely to open by the end of the year.

Colchester Council aims to decide on Anytime Fitness plans by July 10.
