A BREAN water park has unveiled new plans to extend its facilities with a new outdoor 'feature pool' and new water rides.

Brean Leisure Park, which owns Brean Splash, is seeking planning permission from Sedgemoor District Council to build four new rides to extend its offering as part of a five year development plan.

If the plans are approved a number of new rides will be introduced including a wave rider that can be used by two people at the same time and a ‘Space bowl’ that is described as a 'high thrill water ride.'

A 'Water Play' section aimed at all ages and a new 'Multislide' which is aimed at families could also be built as well as a new outdoor pool which will include a 'Wave ball' pool with a beach.

Brean Leisure Park said the proposals are part of plans to extend the water park to provide additional changing space and improve its facilities. The expansion could create up to 20 new jobs.

Sarah House, director of Brean Splash, said “The design of the building is a simple extension, sited to enable the existing entrance to be maintained and changing rooms to be extended. This allows for a larger shop area and more space for internal seating for the existing cafe.

"A better changing room arrangement will allow for closing off sections at peak times to allow for cleaning whilst still providing sufficient changing space.”

“A ‘changing places’ accessible changing room is provided along with additional easily accessible disabled changing rooms and toilets. The building is capable of being separated into zones which will enable it to be operated efficiently depending upon the demand.”

“Externally, the area available will be extended and a new feature pool will be added. Currently this is proposed as a ‘Wave ball’ pool which has a beach and small waves. This will be enclosed by a fence to match the existing.”

Comments are welcome on the application until February 21.
