THE buildings that housed an indoor trampoline park before it went into liquidation has been converted back for industrial use.

Dorset Council has approved the move which will see the two buildings in Ferndown Industrial Estate revert to their original use.

Use of the unit as a trampoline park and café was approved when East Dorset District Council granted planning permission in April 2016 for Activate to run the centre.

Speaking at the time, the owners of the family business, Pam and Martin deWavrin and their daughter Sarah-Louise, said they hoped the to expand the company.

They said the Ferndown centre was “the perfect place to start” due to its large car park and location not far from Bournemouth and Poole.

However, in September Activate closed suddenly leaving many people who had booked events at the centre in limbo.

It was confirmed later that month that the business had gone into liquidation with McAlister and Co Insolvency Practitioners appointed to oversee the process.

Earlier this year, Dawson and King applied to the district council to revert the use of the two business units in Haviland Road.

The application was supported by Ferndown and Uddens Business Improvement District which welcomed the reintroduction of industrial use of the site to the industrial estate.

Ferndown Town Council also said it had no objection to the change.

Dawson and King’s plans were approved on Monday by Dorset Council which said the change complied with its policies

“The application site lies on an established industrial estate in an area where employment use is encouraged,” planning officer James Brightman said.

“The proposal was formerly a trampoline park and before that was in use for B1, B2 and B8 and is reverting to these industrial uses.”

The planning application says that details of future use of the business units is not yet known.
