Bosses behind what would be Norwich's first trampoline park hope it will open by the summer – and pledged it will be safe.

High Altitude Limited has, as previously reported, lodged plans with Norwich City Council for the trampoline park at the former CMC Carpets and Furniture Centre, in Whiffler Road, Mile Cross.

The proposal needs to get planning permission from the city council and bosses are hoping that will happen in time for the park to open for the summer holidays.

Another trampoline park experienced problems earlier this year. Ryze, near Edinburgh, opened without a suitable licence and the local council intervened after more than 100 'incidents', including reports of broken bones.

But Dave Vincent, of High Altitude, which has been helped by enterprise agency Nwes, said: 'We have researched similar parks in the UK, and the US and are adamant the facility in Norwich will be better and safer than any.

'There is a risk in all sports, but we are going to ensure that our park monitors are strict on calling 'yellow' and 'red' cards for those users who do not abide by our safe use policy.

'All our staff will be first-aid trained, especially with children in mind, and we are looking to employ staff with qualifications in sports injuries particularly.'
