The proposed facility will be operated by AK Leisure - trading as Airkings - which also run trampoline parks in Doncaster and Scunthorpe.

The unit - which is 15,000 sq ft - had previously been used by a automotive recovery firm, but has been empty since 2015.

The application included an indoor inflatable area, party rooms, changing rooms, a cafe and a viewing gallery. Plans have also been submitted for 42 car parking spaces.
