PLANS for a health and fitness centre and golf academy at the Willow Valley Golf Club, Clifton, Brighouse, have been approved at last.
Calderdale councillors approved the plan to change the use of an agricultural building.
The application, by Newsmith Stainless, had been turned down several times.
The refusals were due to concerns about drainage, that the plan was contrary to green belt policies and that such a scheme should be in a town centre.
But following modifications to the drainage, planning committee members decided the application was not against green belt policies.
The health and fitness club and academy will comprise a weights and a general fitness area, an indoor putting area, a monitored swing instruction rooms, a golf course simulator room, a mind and body room, a cloakroom and changing rooms.
