£1m boost to save Ipswich’s famous lido
£1m boost to save Ipswich’s famous lido
Ipswich's Borough Council has pledged £1m for the town's famous Grade II-listed 50 metre lido which has been closed since 2002.

The outdoor pool is now a step closer to reopening following the pledge which means other investors and Heritage Lottery Fund money can be sought.

The Broomhill Pool Trust local campaigning group has been working with Fusion Lifestyle, a leisure company which runs open-air pools in London.

The company's proposal is to spend £5m, which includes the council's £1m, but will be reliant on getting about £3m from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Mark Ling, chairman of the trust, said: "We're delighted that the option will be given a good chance to progress.

"We think Fusion Lifestyle has a splendid track record and all the skills in terms of fundraising."

Another famous UK lido is facing 'decision day'. The listed landmark, seafront lido in Saltdean near Brighton has been the subject of a petition of 3,000 people who urged action to be taken to save building.

The local authority, which owns the freehold to the lido, could now serve a notice on the operator ordering repairs.
Failure to carry out work could lead to the compulsory purchase of the lease, which has been held by businessman Dennis Audley since 1997.

The report notes the council served a legal repairs notice on Mr Audley in May 2010 and this dispute is still ongoing.
