Council Leader pledges protection for Lido

Councillor Mears remarks were a response to worries among residents about plans by the leaseholder, Dennis Audley, to put more than 100 flats on the site.

Councillor Mears said: "I want both the leaseholder and residents to forget about the idea of putting significant amounts of housing on this site. It is a complete non-starter. The council will never allow it.”

She pointed out that Brighton and Hove City Council are not only the freehold owner of the site but also the planning authority. And she noted that Mr Audley had not submitted a formal planning application despite announcing an ambitious scheme for the site last year.
