Gouldings Garden Centre to offer outdoor activities

Land at Gouldings Garden Centre in the Clyde Valley will turn into an adventure play park.

Gouldings 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?.
