An indoor trampoline park in what is due to become a new city centre retail park has moved a step closer.Advertisement
The Queen Street Retail park is awaiting major works to begin and during this time developers are proposing to create an indoor fun house.
Plans show a main trampoline area, kids trampoline area, foam pit and party rooms would be included.
The Brookhouse Group propose to run the trampoline park for two years and reinstate the usage for retail units once the time period has expired.
The trampoline park would be open from 9am to 9pm on weekdays and from 9am to 10pm on weekends.
A landlord for social housing in the Avenham area has objected to the plans, saying it will increase congestion in London Road and increase parking problems.
The developers say parking within the current retail park could be used.
Planning officers, who are recommending the scheme for approval, state: “Whilst an objection has been received relating to the traffic impact of the proposed use, the proposal is considered to be acceptable and would not have any significantly undue impacts on traffic and highway safety.
“The proposal would result in the re-use of a vacant unit which would be of benefit to the surrounding area.”
Councillors will consider the trampoline park plans on Thursday at the Town Hall in planning committee from 1.30pm onwards.
