A TRAMPOLINE operator has confirmed it will be landing in Poole after winning permission to open among industrial units.

Gojumpin will open a Jump In Trampolining Centre at Tower Park.

It signed a deal to occupy one of the largest units in a new development at Horizon Park in Innovation Close.

Borough of Poole planners have granted permission for Gojumpin to change the use of the 24,800sqft site, which had been designated for industrial use.

Industrial developer Chancerygate had won permission to develop 11 warehouse and distribution units on the four acre site.

Construction is due to begin in November and be finished in the third quarter of 2018.

Another unit, of 20,000sqft, is under offer by a “household name occupier”, Chancerygate.

It says half the park’s space is now let or under offer.

Adrian Whitfield, industrial and logistics director at LSH’s Southampton office, said: “To have 50 per cent of space at a speculative development let or under offer at this stage in the process is a great result, and shows the enormous amount of positive feeling around this scheme and the economy in the region.’’

Vernon West of Gojumpin said: “Establishing a suitable site in Dorset is key to our expansion plan as we continue to bring the Gojumpin experience to people around the country.

“Horizon Park is a perfect location for us - we are excited to have secured this unit and look forward to seeing the site take shape in the weeks and months to come.’’

The application to put a family attraction among the industrial units at Yarrow Road drew several objections from neighbouring businesses – including South Western Ambulance Service, which has a base nearby.

The ambulance trust’s estates manager, Steve Llewellyn, wrote that he was “concerned as to the effect this development will have on the ability of Poole ambulance station to respond to emergency calls, provide high quality patient care and perform its routine daily duties”.

Peter Martin of Tripleplay Services wrote: “The offices at Innovation Close are already crowded with the number of cars, with parking taking place on the public road, on pavements as well as the marked car parking areas.“During holiday periods I don’t believe the planned number of parking spaces at the proposed trampoline park will be sufficient and this would mean people trying to find alternative parking in the surrounding parts of the trading estate with consequent congestion and disruption to delivery and service vehicles.”

Jonathan Aris, managing director of Tower Supplies, said he was worried about customers of the trampoline park using his company’s parking.

“During peak times, the traffic around the Tower Park areas is backed up and congested and with the increased traffic that the trampoline park will bring, the overcrowding and obstructions will have a negative impact on our delivery times and service,” he wrote.

However, Robin Hill of Ken Parke Planning Consultants, said the attraction’s 61 parking spaces would be “more than adequate” and the centre “will not increase on-street car parking and thereby will have no impact on the potential for ad-hoc parking”.
