Bluecoat Sports are delighted to announce that we have redesigned our major indoor and outdoor fitness expansion plans, following a major review of the project.
Since January, we’ve been working hard to take on board all of the helpful comments we’ve received and have made amendments to our project to ensure we’re providing Horsham and it’s residents with the right facilities.
Not only will the new facilities benefit the whole of the Horsham community, the pupils at Christ’s Hospital School will have the opportunity to utilise the new facilities. With all of the profits from Bluecoat Sports going to the school itself, the expansion will help to provide more students across the country with bursaries and grants to attend the school.

Our planning application is now live on the Horsham District Council Planning Portal. Please show your support for the plans by leaving a comment on the application.
To ensure that the public had a say on our brand new facilities, we held a public consultation at Bluecoat Sports on 21st and 22nd May. This consultation gave members, local residents and the general public the opportunity to look at the revised plans on display boards around our café, as well as CGI imagery of what the expansion will look like.
We also presented before and after images of the project from the original plans and our revised plans with the changes we have made based on your feedback. This included adjustments to the plan to reduce lighting and noise pollution, and to improve landscaping in the area.
If you would like to speak to the Bluecoat Sports project team involved in the expansion, the architect team LK2, or Charmaine Hawkins, the planning consultant, and ask any questions you have about the project, please email directly.

By hosting an initial consultation, we were able to review feedback and make adjustments in the public’s interest to our project; to create the perfect sporting expansion for our town.
