Brighton and Hove City Council has granted the Saltdean Lido Community Interest Company (SLCIC) a 63-year lease for the grade II* listed art deco pool and building. This means that some of the £4.2 million from the National Lottery Heritage Fund can be released and restoration plans started.
The main building is on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register and in a dilapidated condition and has been largely closed to the public for some time. In 1938 its innovative reinforced concrete structure enabled Saltdean Lido's iconic streamlined design, however, due to its sea-facing location, the structure has suffered decades of chloride-attack which has penetrated the building.
Derek Leaver, SLCIC Director said, “Today is a significant step forward in Saltdean Lido’s history, as securing the lease enables us to access funds to start engaging with structural engineers and architects. We need to design how we can restore the building within the guidelines set by Historic England and the National Heritage Lottery fund while providing a sustainable building for use by the community.
“We thank everyone who has generously helped raise funds and volunteered so far for this historic project and look forward to presenting plans for getting the best use out of this potentially lovely building in due course. The project is currently costed at just under £8m and we need to continue to fundraise for the last £700,000, which is required before we can actually start any of the building work.”
The SLCIC aims to make the site financially sustainable with revenue from the pool, a café, fitness and workspace areas plus venue hire for community groups, weddings and other events.

PARC is a charity set up in 1995 to provide recreational facilities for children and young people in Saltdean, Rottingdean and Ovingdean.
We operated for 5 years before opening the charity shop and in that time funded the first play area in Rottingdean and much of the cost of building the toilet block at the same location. Over the 20 years of running the charity shop/s PARC has been able to fund a host of other facilities including;
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Trustees have permanently closed the charity shops in Rottingdean High Street as we are unable to be able open safely nor profitably while following guidelines. This has been a hard decision to make and has involved a very comprehensive risk assessment. We have been inundated with expressions of sorrow and regret from customers, volunteers and other traders and thank everyone for this.
However, PARC plans to continue the work of campaigning and seeking funding for facilities for our young people.
To mark the 25th Anniversary of the charity we have a project planned for a children's storytelling area on Rottingdean seafront.
We are always keen to hear from people about what is needed for children and young people locally so please keep in touch.

An online survey has been launched to gather the views of Peacehaven residents on what they want for their new town centre on the Meridian site by the Peacehaven and Telscombe Neighbourhood Development Plan Steering Group (PTNDP).

The redevelopment will be achieved by Henry Davidson Developments Limited (HDD). Soon HDD will commence a series of public participation consultations. A planning application is expected to be submitted to Lewes District Council who are the planning authority by the end of the year.

The survey includes an option for residents to rank suggested options including weekend markets, a covered shopping area and a pedestrianised street with options to add ideas. The survey can be completed online here.
