Approval for open air pool in Brighton

Construction of a new outdoor pool on Brighton’s seafront will get underway this autumn after securing planning permission. 

Brighton & Hove City Council granted Sea Lanes Brighton permission to begin the transformation of the former Peter Pan site on Madeira Drive, Brighton, into the National Open Water Swimming Centre.

The development, which is due to open in 2022, will help revive this part of Brighton Seafront by delivering a permanent 50m open air heated swimming pool, which will be accessible to all and will provide much needed swimming facilities in Brighton.

The swimming pool will be supported by small business units suitable for retail, health and fitness as well as a food court with street food kiosks and an outdoor seating area. Adventure swimming holiday company SwimTrek has already committed to house its headquarters in the complex.

The new development will create over 100 new jobs for the local area. In addition to SwimTrek, plans for the Sea Lanes business units have already attracted interest from local businesses ranging from fitness specialists to food offerings.

“The support we have had from the local community has been overwhelming and in the current climate we are looking forward to providing the Brighton community with better swimming facilities, jobs and security,” says Joe McNulty, director of Sea Lanes Brighton.
