A new trampoline park looks set to be coming to Newquay with a planning application being recommended for approval.

The new attraction is being planned to be built on land next to Waterworld in Newquay on the former pitch and putt site which is owned by Cornwall Council.

Plans for the trampoline park are set to go before the council’s strategic planning committee next week and have been recommended for approval by planning officers.

The applicants, Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL), said that they had amended the plans after undertaking public consultation. They have incorporated a cafe and a viewing area on the first floor of the planned trampoline park.

Members of the public also suggested that normal bouncing, gladiator style activities, foam pit, swing and gymnastics should all be included and the applicants have incorporated them into the design.

Planning officers have said that the trampoline park “would provide an additional leisure/recreation in a highly accessible location, within an established leisure destination in so doing would provide an additional all weather facility for the community as well as visitors to the area”.

GLL, which also operates Cornwall Council’s leisure centres, including Waterworld, said the proposed new scheme is intended to enhance the existing leisure activities of the Waterworld Leisure Centre and offer additional leisure options to the local community.

The company said: “The new trampoline park will offer alternative fitness opportunities and can encourage people of the community from all ages, for example children, young people, families and more diverse user groups, to attend different bouncing activities and jumping sessions.”

Trampoline parks have become hugely popular across the country in recent years. In 2014 there were three across the UK, today there are more than 200.

The International Association of Trampoline Parks estimates that they attract around 15 million people a year.
