AN image of how the exterior of a proposed new gym in Taunton could look has been unveiled.

PureGym hopes to shortly have the new facility up and running in Hankridge Way, on the outskirts of the county town.

It has put in a planning application for an "internally illuminated fascia sign and totem overlay graphics" at the premises.

PureGym announced last summer its intention to open the gym in the vacant former PC World unit.

At the time, it applied for permission to instal plant, add a new main entrance and infill the existing entrance door.

PureGym, which already operates in Bridgwater and Weston-super-Mare, also plans to open a gym in Yeovil's Houndstone Park on February 15.
