ONE-TO-ONE sports performance coaching could be provided from an agricultural building at the former East Fortune Airfield.

One of the bays at the shed, to the north of the racing circuit and south of the B1377, would be used to house the business.

A document included with a planning application from Sandy Pate noted that one third of the building would be partitioned off to form “a sports performance coaching facility”.

The statement reads: “The plan is to use the building for 1-1 sports performance coaching, having clients in receiving a private gym session one at a time (sometimes two clients as both coaches would be working out of the unit).

“Clients would just come for the hour session and leave again.

“No one would have access to train in the facility unless the coaches were on site.

“It’s an exclusive and private service that is provided.”

The document, which is part of a change-of-use application lodged with East Lothian Council’s planning department, notes that the coaching can be spread out across the day.

It reads: “In terms of hours, this changes with new clients coming in; currently the coaches can work from 6am in the morning until 9pm Monday to Friday.

“However, this is spread out so may be a few sessions at 6/7am and a few later in the day.

“Sometimes the coaches may be finished by lunch time and other days they won’t be in at all.

“They would also be coaching out of the facility at weekends (mainly mornings).”
