Dundee council performs u-turn on bid for Ryze trampoline park

City councillors are likely to give a bid to bring a Ryze trampoline park to Dundee the green light after it was given the stamp of approval by planners.

The council’s development management committee meets on Monday and will likely give the go-ahead to adding a trampoline park to the Soccerworld indoor football facility on Old Glamis Road.

The £1.5 million project will create 60 new jobs at the facility – although at the cost of four indoor pitches in the Soccerworld building.

How the trampoline park may look

City planners have submitted a report in which they recommend its approval, despite receiving one letter of objection from a local resident.

They said: “There are material considerations which would support the approval of planning permission. Therefore it is recommended that planning permission be granted subject to conditions.”

City planners have previously turned down applications to open the trampoline park at a site on Claverhouse Industrial Park.

However, planners have sympathised with the idea of adding trampoline facilities onto an existing leisure facility.

The report continued: “The opening hours and target markets of the proposed trampoline park are not significantly dissimilar to that of the existing 5 a side football pitches.

“The existing and proposed uses would benefit local communities by providing an all-weather leisure development.”

Planners have also given their pre-emptive approval to adding a first floor onto Soccerworld in which cafe facilities can be located, as existing facilities will be replaced by the trampoline park.

Ryze has been contacted for comment.
