Plans for a new £2m indoor trampoline park submitted by the operator of Morecambe’s Pleasureland FEC have been given the green light.
Jet Ltd, owned by Gavin and Solomon Reader, is now free to start construction of the indoor attraction in the Pleasureland’s car park, located behind the seafront amusement arcade.
Lancaster City Council approved a full planning application to the 25,000-square trampoline park, which will also feature a café, party rooms and associated facilities across two floors.
Jet said it hoped the park would stimulate footfall in Morecambe, with families and parties, fitness groups and corporate parties the core audience targeted.
It estimated that up to 20 jobs will be created when the new attraction opens, covering roles from customer service assistants through to engineers and chefs.
The 50 metre by 48 metre trampoline park would be located next to the Morecambe Conservation Area, which covers the buildings fronting both Marine Road Central and Northumberland Street.
Once construction is finished, the number of spaces in Pleasureland’s car park will be reduced from 450 to 280.
