Land at Gouldings Garden Centre in the Clyde Valley will turn into an adventure play park.
has submitted a planning application. They’re looking to add to their offer with “a range of outdoor activities?.
The new adventure play area will include a zip wire, pedal go-karts and trampolines.
And the L-shaped adventure park will go on land next to the garden centre. There’s also provision for up to 175 extra car parking spaces.
There are plans for a toboggan run, tractor train, bounce pillows, picnic area and a straw fortress. A footgolf course is also in the plans
Planners have recommended the application for approval by the committee next week. It complies with policies of the South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan.
Six local residents were among seven people to object. Parking, a flood plain and an increase in traffic are the main issues.
A resident stated: ?The garden centre already offers great facilities.
?Let?s leave it at that. Keep this positive word of? mouth rather than changing to an ?amusement park.?
Another raised issues with parking. They wrote: ?The existing car park is overflowing on most days. Where will the customers park their cars? without congesting an already busy road??
In response, the roads department and SEPA went into consultation.
There were ?no concerns about parking provision?. While SEPA objected because of the flood risk, they raised ?no concerns? after the revision.
Flooding remains a risk but applicants JL Gouldings and Son are ?aware of this and the impact it will have?.
