A TRAMPOLINE park proposed for Salisbury will not go ahead.

Operator Gojumpin has pulled out of plans to create a new trampoline park in a vacant warehouse in Castlegate Business Park, in Old Sarum.

The decision was confirmed by site owners Romfield Holdings Limited, which said the trampoline firm had scrapped its plans after it saw a downturn in business at the end of last year.

The plan was approved by Wiltshire Council in February, in a move which would have seen the creation of more than 60 jobs.

At the time Gojumpin said it had hoped to open the trampoline park because there were no other similar facilities in the area.

The idea was welcomed by local people, with many taking to social media to share their joy.

Sharon West said: “Good news for Salisbury, need more things like this for are kids.”

The project would have boasted an open jump area, for up to 90 jumpers, dodgeball areas, foam pits, tumbletracks, along with a café and conference room.

Romfield Properties owner Lyell Fairlie said: “Gojumpin decided not to expand anymore and have pulled out of two proposed sites.

“The company still say they are interested in Salisbury but I am not sure what they are going to find, mine was the only site that was suitable.”

Mr Fairlie added that he had been in talks with two other parties interested in the unit to transform into a trampoline park but discussions have stalled.

“I bought the unit a year ago after I was approached by Woolley and Wallis and I gave myself a year to let the building,” added Mr Fairlie.

The company is now looking at letting the unit to commercial businesses as it has been sitting empty for more than a year.
