Brighton & Hove City Council has agreed to a long lease for a swimming pool project dubbed Sea Lanes at the long-vacant Peter Pan’s playground in Madeira Drive 800 metres east of Brighton Pier.
Sea Lanes forms part of a wider £1 billion regeneration plan for Brighton seafront and the developers behind the complex of open air swimming pools believe the facility will be the first of its kind in the country. Developers Copsemill Properties and SwimTrek hope it will become a national centre for open water swimming.
Plans include a heated, open-air 50-metre long eight-lane pool, showers, sauna, changing rooms, studios for training, therapy rooms, exercise and yoga facilities, a café, retail, offices, a function room and a bike hire facility.
A planning application is anticipated at the end of the summer with an 18 month build time.
