BBC Suffolk: Ipswich lido £5.3m restoration plan wins approval


Ipswich Borough Council's planning committee gave the project the green light, but told the developers, Fusion Lifestyle, to consider the impact of car parking in the area.

The project has to wait to hear if it has been awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) next month.


If it gains the £3.3m funding, the developers aim to reopen the pool in 2020.
The Broomhill Pool Trust, which has been campaigning for the lido to reopen for 15 years, said it was "absolutely delighted" the project had passed this "major milestone".
