Saltdean Lido changing room roof

(East Sussex)

The restoration and redevelopment of Saltdean Lido: The pool changing rooms are built but require a number of items to be complete including a permanent roof, heating, lighting, cubicles, drainage works, cladding of the building. The changing rooms are an essential part of the user experience and will benefit all users of the pool.

Our goals:

  • To ensure all visitors have access to faclities that enable them to benefit from and enjoy their experience at the Lido
  • To ensure the changing rooms for The Saltdean Lido are fit for purpose and signed off by Brighton & Hove planning dept.
  • To encourage word of mouth recommendation to other potential visitors that Saltdean Lido is a fully rounded leisure offer
£25k project Currently ranked 1 in Active Living

How we will achieve our goals

The changing rooms are a core final part of delivery of the pool & facilities project. They will encourage regular usage and the ongoing support and interest of the community. It will also demonstrate to other funders that the delivery team can be trusted to move forward on refurbishment of the building -needs a further Β£7.8m

Where the money will go

The restored Lido affords a unique recreational & leisure experience for people of all ages, inspiring more active lifestyles & improving people’s physical health & well-being. The restoration project has already delivered a community resource of which local people of all ages are very proud. Saltdean is already a better place to live, work & visit

    Since the Lido opened, my children have visited it with friends nearly every other day. It would be amazing if the changing rooms could get finished as at the moment, there is just one big communal space

  18. Posted on August 11, 2017

    Good Luck and Thank you for all your efforts.

  19. Posted on August 11, 2017

    Had a wonderful swim this morning at 0800 hours. Water pleasantly warm and plenty of people around, many of whom were good swimmers. It is so important to get the changing facilities completed to match the super pool. What a wonderful facility the Lido is.

    Small comment: do we say Lie-doh or Lee-doh ? Or perhaps Lid-oh ?

  20. Posted on August 15, 2017

    Both the restoration project and the re-opened Lido have given Saltdean it’s heart back. The first session with synchro swimmers was fabulous family fun; now we just need those changing rooms finished!

  21. Posted on August 23, 2017

    Being a local business trader I am a staunch supporter of the Lido and the amazing commitment of the local volunteers who have worked tirelessly against so many barriers to achieve what they have done so far. It is only right that the changing rooms are completed to enable the next stages of the Lido’s rejuvenation to go ahead. Good luck to all involved

  22. Posted on August 27, 2017

    Restoring a Lido, especially this one which like many other Lidos in the UK is part of our unique national heritage and an amazing public gesture to what we hold dear . . . a public open space for community swimming. The community that has saved this lido from commercial development have worked so hard and been so dedicated to the end vision despite many set backs. Let’s get that 25K and get the job done! I’m not a local resident but I will come and visit and use the facilities because I want to enjoy swimming in the magnificence of this beautiful pool.

  52. Posted on September 6, 2017

    A very deserving cause. These volunteers have done a fantastic job so far and deserve all the ongoing support they can get. They have proved they can achieve their goals with all their hard work.

  53. Posted on September 6, 2017
