THE SALTDEAN LIDO TRUST AND SALTDEAN LIDO CIC
The Saltdean Lido Trust was established as a registered charity in (charity no. 1173503) in June 2017 with the aim of restoring and maintaining Saltdean Lido, the only Grade II* listed coastal lido in the country.
The Trust has grown out of the 'Save Saltdean Lido' campaign, a community group who, saddened by the Lido's demise and outraged at proposals for a residential development worked hard to get the developer leaseholder off the site.
Subsequently they formed the Saltdean Lido Community Interest Group (company no. 08206744), a not for profit organisation and won the tender to take on the new lease for the site from Brighton and Hove City Council.
The CIC is now a trading subsidiary of the charity.
Thanks to the considerable support of the local people and significant grants raised, the volunteers managed to open the renewed site in the summer of 2017.
