PLANS for a trampoline park have been submitted which will transform a Bicester warehouse into a bouncy space.

Despite growing in popularity across the country, no trampoline parks appear to have sprung up in Oxfordshire yet.

Rebound Revolution Limited hopes to develop a unit at the Talisman Business Park, off London Road, which has been empty for about 10 months.

The proposal would create a space jam-packed with more than 80 inter-connected trampolines, plus other activities including the first virtual reality climbing wall at a trampoline park.

Rebound Revolution Limited co-director Matt Tofts, 38, said: "Lots of these types of parks are located out of town where people have to drive, whereas we wanted somewhere that people can walk, cycle or get the train. So Bicester was ideal."

The new trampoline park is aimed at anyone older than six and as well as inter-connected trampolines would see tumble strips, basketball hoops and a 'cardio wall'.

Mr Tofts also said there would be no foam pits to avoid safety fears and instead were opting for giant airbags.

He added: "There has been an unbelievable response. Obviously we thought it was a good idea, but its seems everybody in Bicester is crying out for this.

"Families say they can't wait for this to open to provide something for kids and to encourage exercise as well.

"We have already had nearly 40 letters of support which we didn't expect and are just really pleased with."

The application is for a change of use at the 12,000 sq ft unit and most changes will be internal. The outside of the building will remain largely the same plus the addition of three extra parking spaces, 40 cycle spaces and three extra disabled parking spaces.

It is expected to bring about 35 new jobs for the town.

Comments on the application include Jessica Read who said it would "provide a much-needed boost to local leisure, fitness and fun" and Katie Holmes who said it was an "absolutely brilliant idea".

Another commenter Emma Lethbridge said she would love the development in Bicester as she often has to travel with her son to Milton Keynes or Northampton for the trampoline park.

There are similar parks in Swindon.

The public consultation is open and plans will be put to councillors for a decision to be made before May 18.

Mr Tofts said if plans are given approval it is hoped the build will take nine weeks to complete.
