Plans for trampoline park given approval
A FORMER homeware store is going to be turned into Cardiff’s latest trampoline park.
The Hadfield Road B&Q store closed in June 2016, leaving behind an empty, single-storey retail unit.
When it was a B&Q it was one giant premises, but since its closure has been divided into two.
One of the units has already had permission for alterations to be made to the building and parking area.
It is due to open as building supply store Selco this year.
The latest application for the site was for an as yet unnamed company to open a trampoline park.
As part of the site, there would be a trampoline and jumping section, cafe, and changing and locker area.
There would also be a seating area for spectators.
The application is minor and is only for a change in use in terms of planning law.
Claire Cope, director of Ashfield Land, who are dealing with the application, wrote in the papers submitted to Cardiff council: “The proposed change of use seeks to bring Unit B back into active use, meeting occupier demand for a new trampolining and jump facility on Hadfield Road. The use is considered appropriate and complimentary to the unit next door, which is currently being re-configured for Selco.”
The city has witnessed a recent boom in trampoline facilities. Targeted at kids and adults alike, they are billed as a way to get fit while having fun.
The city already has two large facilities – Go Air at Ty-Glas Avenue in Llanishen, and Infinity at Pengam Road in Tremorfa.
The planning application has been decided and given approval by Cardiff council.
