Former regional daily printworks to become trampoline park

Plans to transform a disused regional daily printworks into an indoor trampoline park have been approved.

Derby City Council has given the go ahead to the scheme, which will see the former Derby Telegraph printworks at Meadow Road, Derby, turned into a development called ‘Jumptastic’.

The Northcliffe House building, pictured below, which sits next to the River Derwent, was first used by the Telegraph in 1981 and was finally vacated in 2014.

The plan has been given the green light subject to a flood plan being implemented, as well as details of cycle parking provision being agreed.

The print operation ceased at Meadow Road, above, a couple of years before the Telegraph’s editorial staff relocated from the adjacent office to its new base closer to the city centre, on Siddals Road, in November 2014.

The application states the ground floor of the site will be the main arena for the trampolines which will also incorporate a zone for beginners and younger children who also wish to use the facilities.

The ground floor will also feature a generous reception, while the first floor will provide accommodation for the proposed cafe facilities, children’s party rooms and all associated kitchen and toilet facilities.
