The SRA is currently working with the Saltdean Lido Community Interest Company to identify funds for the refit of the interior space in The Lido.
This work was started by identifying the needs that community groups may have now and in the future.
A funding route has been identified and joint efforts are being made between the CIC and the SRA to secure funding for 2022.
NEWS ON THE BUILDING RESTORATION PROJECT
26th February 2021
A Great Day for Saltdean Lido!
Last night, Brighton & Hove City Council agreed to a £1.135m match-funding package to support the Grade II* lido’s historic restoration.
Thanks to the budget amendment proposed by Cllr Joe Miller, and the city council who worked together to agree on a deal, restoration works to bring Saltdean Lido back to its former glory can begin later this year.
The volunteer team behind the Lido restoration project have already secured money from multiple trusts, foundations and supporters but this could not be used until all the money was in place. Thanks to the amendment and the thousands of people who signed a petition and emailed councillors over the past few days, we now know that the project can begin.
Derek Leaver, chair of SLCIC said: “This is a good day for Saltdean Lido, the city and all of our supporters. There is still a huge amount of work to do before we can put boots on the ground – saving the building is going to be a complex task. But this is a day to celebrate and we thank everyone who’s been part of the project over the past 10 years to bring us to this point”.
Saltdean Lido will be restored as a national tourist destination, create dozens of new jobs and help boost our local economy.
