New adventure trails for Segways and pedestrians could be coming to a holiday village near Bridlington if they get planning approval.

The project is planned for Thornwick Holiday Village and will see the construction of two trails to be used by visitors on foot and on Segways.

Segways are two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicles and if the development goes ahead, tourists will be able to hire them to take out on the trail.

In a planning application submitted to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, architects Leisure Concepts said the Segways would provide “an innovate and exciting way to explore the natural beauty of the surrounding area”.

“Our proposals seek to redevelop this existing tourist resort increasing the range and quality of facilities, ensuring it remains a popular destination and securing its future.

“The proposal will enhance an current unused area of land, increasing the outdoor activities available to park 
users”, they added.

It planning permission is granted, visitors will be able to see the beautiful East Yorkshire Coast without even breaking a sweat.

In addition to the new trail, eight new timber exercise stations will also be constructed to “encourage health and wellbeing of park” residents”.

The pedestrian route is planned to be around 0.8 miles while the Segway route will be significantly greater than this at 2.5 miles in length.

The developers also claim the facilities will come as a boost to the local economy, 
because an improved park would be likely to attract more visitors to the area.

They said: “The planned improvements will maintain the resorts positive contribution to the local economy.”

Theproposal is currently being considered by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
