 Step forward for Broomhill Lido project
 
Apr 26, 2017
 
This week, Fusion Lifestyle – the leading registered charity providing quality sport, leisure and fitness activities to local communities – announces a major step forward in their exciting plans to restore and redevelop Broomhill Lido, the historic grade II listed pool on Sherrington Road, Ipswich.
 
Fusion is now in the final stages of preparing their second stage application for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the application for planning permission for the project. As part of this work, Fusion is working with local firm KLH Architects to consult on their design proposals and is inviting local people to review and provide their feedback on the plans.
 
The design proposals will be put on display at Broomhill Library from 12.00noon on Friday 28th April until 4.00pm on Wednesday 3rd May. The display will then be moved to the Castle Hill Community Centre on Highfield Road where it will remain until 4.00pm on Saturday 6th May.
 
Members of the public will be invited in for a day of consultation on 6th May from 10.00am to 4.00pm, where representatives from Fusion and KLH will be on hand to answer any questions about their proposals.
Residents will also be able to participate in an on-line survey. (Further details of this will be provided by Fusion in due course).
 
Tim Mills of Fusion Lifestyle said “This is a particularly important time for the project as we put the finishing touches to our planning application and the final funding application to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Our previous consultations have shown that this project enjoys the support of many Ipswich residents and this is the last chance for people to express that support before the HLF considers Fusion’s proposal”.
 
Mark Ling, Chair of the Broomhill Pool Trust, long-term lobbyists and supporters of the restoration project said ““Lidos are enjoying a renaissance and Ipswich has one of Britain’s finest. Fusion has an exceptional track record of restoring and operating listed lidos. We are confident that they will deliver a scheme that is popular locally and celebrated nationally.”.

HISTORIC POOLS OF BRITAIN - 2016 Round Up.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Ipswich's Grade II listed Broomhill Pool is a proud founding member of Historic Pools of Britain.

2016 marks the first full year of Historic Pools of Britain; it's been a year that's seen both excitement and disappointment for pools across the nation. What has been very clear is the nation's passion for historic pools and the need for representation, so we are extremely grateful for your support. Collectively we are starting to make our voices heard and are enjoying the benefits of learning from each other, and we look forward to continuing this work in 2017.
