£300,000 second swimming pool plan unveiled in Burnham-On-Sea

Burnham-On-Sea's Swim and Sports Academy has this week unveiled plans to build a second swimming pool, plus two new fitness studios, a sauna and a spa as part of a major £300,000 expansion.

Talking to, the owners Mark and Sara Cox-Conklin, pictured, said the scheme is part of an "exciting second phase for the Academy's development."

The new building is planned for the vacant land at the front of the site next to Berrow Road, to the east of the current pool building.

Mark explained: "The proposed new second 5x10m pool will be a warmer water facility than our current one and will be aimed at young children, babies and mums so we can provide classes from a much earlier age."

"Our existing 13 spin classes are hugely popular so we're also adding two new cardio studios with extra equipment in addition to a new sauna and spa."

"We're super pleased with the plans, which continue the development of the Academy. We offer much more than just the original swimming pool."

Sara added: "We're really excited by the plans, which will allow us to cater for younger children and mums for the first time while also expanding our facilities for members."

The Academy currently employs 45 staff and offers a wide range of 65 classes to its customers.

The planning application is due to be considered by Town Councillors next week and the final decision will rest with Sedgemoor District Council.
