The City Council pledges to save Saltdean Lido

A pledge to secure the future of Saltdean Lido has been made today by Brighton & Hove City Council’s new administration.

The pledge was made by Councillor Geoffrey Bowden in response to residents’ concerns about the future of the iconic Grade 2 listed pool. 
“The council shares everyone’s passion for the Lido,” said Councillor Bowden.  “The argument is not about whether we save it – we all agree that we must.  The debate is about how best to do it.
“Going through the courts will be expensive, slow and, ultimately, may not work.
“The situation is very complex and we have a duty to be legally fair to everyone, including the current leaseholder.  However, we are determined to work with all those involved to protect and enhance the Lido for the future.”
