Saltdean Lido, Marine Drive, Saltdean - Brighton and Hove, City of (UA)

Lido of 1938, by RWH Jones in Moderne style. The building remains largely closed and requires extensive concrete repairs and general upgrading. The Saltdean Community Interest Company has a 60 year lease and has secured planning and listed building consent for its repair and reuse. The pool opened in summer 2017, but works to the building are yet to commence. Funding for a discrete repair project has been offered by Historic England and other major funding has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Coastal Communities and Social Investment in Business funds.
