THE OWNERS of Imagination Street are urging residents in Bromsgrove and Redditch to help back its application to build a brand new state-of-the-art 10,000sq ft trampoline park.
Matt Jinks and Kevin Grubb, who announced this week the Bromsgrove Imagination Street would be closing, are hoping to add ‘Gravitation Street’ to their Redditch site.
But planning officers from Redditch Borough Council are considering refusing the application on the several grounds, including that it is ‘inappropriate development in the greenbelt’.
If it did open, 80 children will be able to bounce and tumble to their hearts content. The trampoline park will have free bouncing areas, dodgeball courts, basketball nets and many other unique features.
The trampoline park would be suitable from anyone from 0 to 16 and even adults and, along with toddler sessions, times for children with disabilities and evening events for teenagers, the park would also be used to run exercise classes.
The pair have contacted Redditch MP Karen Lumley as part of their quest to build what they claim would be a UK first.
And they want users of the existing Imagination Street and residents who are in favour of the trampoline park to put their views forward as part of the planning application.
Those wanting to view the planning application details and express their support should visit www.redditchbc.gov.uk/planning and enter B96 6HH to access it.
Matt added: “This venue would open up so many opportunities to really embed the new and bigger Imagination Street brand into the community with it being relevant to literally everyone.”
* A FACEBOOK competition helped decide the name for the trampoline park.
Over 500 entries were put forward, including iJump Street and Reddi Steady Jump but, after a public vote, Gravitation Street was selected.
Jude Prosser who came up with the winning name said she was over the moon.
“Thank you so much, wow my kids will love this.”
