Sedgemoor District Council in Somerset have approved plans to extend Brean Splash waterpark with new rides and changing rooms.
Brean Leisure Park, owners of Brean Splash, sought permission to extend the building of the swimming pool as part of a five-year development plan of the site.
The approved proposals include the installation of new rides at the popular waterpark, including a wave rider, which two people can use at the same time, and a high thrill water ride known as the Space Bowl.
Other new attractions include a family friendly ‘Multislide’ and a ‘Water Play’ area for all ages. There will also be a new outdoor pool which will feature a Wave Ball pool with a beach.
Additional changing room facilities will also be built at the site. The expansion of Brean Splash is expected to create up to 20 new jobs.
