Plans proposing an indoor trampoline park in Morecambe have been given the go-ahead by Lancashire County Council.
In the £2million plans, the 25,000 square foot area of the Winter Gardens and Pleasureland Amusement Arcade car park will be converted.
Solomon Reader, the owner of Pleasureland and Jet Ltd – who proposed the plans to the Council – has been working with architects to create the new trampoline attraction and restaurant.
He said: “We are thrilled to be planning this exciting family attraction for Morecambe town centre, which we hope will stimulate footfall and visiting families for the local area.
“We are working carefully with local planning departments and architects, as well as carrying out user research, to ensure that we build a trampoline park that is innovative and meets user needs efficiently”.
The brand new trampoline park will be situated next to the Winter Gardens theatre – a grade II listed Victorian property.
The landmark Winter Gardens theatre was built in 1896 and is renowned for its façade of red terracotta and brick.
Proposals for the new trampoline park surfaced days after Bryony Page became the first ever British athlete to win a trampoline medal at this year’s Olympic Games in Rio.
