Further details have emerged about a £1.5 million leisure attraction that could be built inside a disused Dundee market.
Chris Airlie, owner of the Arklay Street Mini Mart and the Troll Inn, is the man behind plans to convert the former Dens Road Market into a leisure facility.
The complex will include 10-pin bowling, trampolines, slides, a roller glider, a mini-golf course and a cafe — as well as space for eating in and hosting parties.
The proposed development, which covers an approximate area of 0.6 hectares, is located at the junction of Dens Road with Arklay Street.
Mr Airlie acquired the site in 2013 and hopes the venture will create about 40 full and part-time jobs.
He has now lodged plans with Dundee City Council. It opens up the proposals for public comment, likely to be scrutinised by councillors at a later date.
Mr Airlie hopes the attraction will be in operation from 9am-10pm, seven days a week. The plans also show that there would be 28 parking spaces, in the hope that families will travel to use the facilities.
Papers lodged with the council also address potential safety concerns about how the building is serviced.
Agreements have been put in place to ensure all vehicles delivering goods or uplifting waste will only enter the site before 9am.
The latest plans replace earlier proposals submitted to the city council.
Mr Airlie has previously said he wants to create the longest roller glider facility — similar to an indoor zip wire — in Europe.
He said he got the idea for the attraction from his children, after constantly being forced to take them out of Dundee for activities.
He explained: “We’re always going to places like Edinburgh and Perth to play centres.
“One day, when my kids saw the building, they said it would be amazing to have something there.
“There’s nothing really
spectacular for kids to go to in Dundee and I want this place to provide that for them.”
