Fire-hit tram­po­line park set to bounce back

Coventry Telegraph - - News - By CLAIRE HAR­RI­SON News Re­porter

DE­SIGNS are be­ing put into place for a ‘big­ger and brighter’ tram­po­line park to re­place the fir­erav­aged fa­cil­ity in Bed­worth.

Bosses at Red Kan­ga­roo say that land­lords are draw­ing up plans for the new-look venue fol­low­ing the dev­as­tat­ing blaze which tore through the pop­u­lar tram­po­line park off School Lane.

This is with a view of open­ing by the end of this year.

The news comes as the firm con­tin­ues to re­ceive an in­flux calls from peo­ple want­ing to know when the fa­cil­ity will re­open again.

A spokesper­son ex­plained: “The land­lords will be sub­mit­ting their plan­ning per­mis­sion ap­pli­ca­tion in the next few months so the park can be re­de­vel­oped in to a big­ger and brighter fa­cil­ity where the space is more us­able.

“We are still hop­ing to be open by the end of 2019.

“Once plan­ning has been sub­mit­ted and hope­fully ap­proved the timescales will be far more ac­cu­rate.”

At the height of the blaze back on Oc­to­ber 18 last year, more than 70 fire­fight­ers tack­led the flames. They man­aged to stop the fire from spread­ing to the re­cep­tion area how­ever the rest of the build­ing, in­clud­ing the main tram­po­line park, was com­pletely de­stroyed.

Spe­cial­ist fire in­ves­ti­ga­tors from War­wick­shire Fire and Res­cue were called in to probe the cause of the fire and they con­cluded it was ac­ci­den­tal.
