The Restoration Project
After years of neglect, the Save Saltdean Lido Campaign was set up in March 2010 by residents after plans were announced to demolish the pool and develop the site to build over 100 flats, destroying the history and heritage of the Lido completely.
In 2011 – due to its architectural merit – the building listing was upgraded to GRADE II* status and remains on the English Heritage ‘Building at Risk’ Register.
The Saltdean Lido CIC (SLCIC) was set up with the core objective to provide a sustainable future for Saltdean Lido which required a major repair and refurbishment project, and an operating plan to safeguard Saltdean Lido for the benefit of the city and future generations to come.
In 2013 Brighton and Hove City Council announced that the SLCIC had won the tender to take on the lease of the site, and this was finally signed and secured in 2020 following three iterations of designs, planning applications and sufficient funding secured.
THANK YOU TO OUR MANY SUPPORTERS WHO MADE THE RESTORATION OF SALTDEAN LIDO POSSIBLE
