At our breakfast meeting on Tuesday 1 May, Deryck Chester, Director of Saltdean Lido CIC gave us the latest news on Saltdean Lido, which was designed as a landmark tourist attraction to bring visitors and investment to East Brighton and Peacehaven.
After a £3.2m restoration the swimming pool was re-opened to the public last year and brought 37,000 tourists to our region in just 99 days!
In 2018 (the lido’s 80th anniversary) attention is being focused on the restoration of the lido’s iconic art-deco building. Once restored, this art deco building will again be a landmark destination of which our region can be proud. It will bring in increased footfall and raise this region’s profile.
