In 2010 Saltdean Lido was under threat from Residential development and potential demolition.  A group of local residents stepped forward and set up the Save Saltdean Lido campaign group.  After a 3-year battle the group successfully stopped development, secured a Grade II* Listing of the site and won the competitive tender to become preferred bidder to take over the site on a 60-year lease.

Saltdean Lido CIC was born made up of local volunteer directors who are committed to raising the £12million required which will see the entire lido site brought back into full public use.

£3millon has been spent on the swimming pool which will re-open in 2017.
