In recent years we have seen an increase in the number of tenants purchasing large trampolines.
Onchan District Commissioners have no objection to the use of trampolines, as long as they are not causing a nuisance to other residents and being used in a safe manner. Please be aware of the following advice for safe use of your trampoline:-
What you can do?
- Be considerate to your immediate neighbours when situating the trampoline. Avoid placing against the property or against the fence adjoining your neighbour.
- Ensure that the trampoline is placed on level ground and securely fastened down to prevent accidents and/or damage to other person's property.
- Supervise children at all times when using the trampoline and only allow one person at a time on the trampoline as per majority of manufacturers safety guidelines.
- When the summer comes to an end, please give thought to storage of the trampoline in winter. Local high winds can lift trampolines which cause considerable damage if not securely fastened down or stored away. Please be aware that you will be liable for the cost of any damage caused by your trampoline to your property or to those around you.
