Three companies interested in re-opening Broomhill Pool
THREE companies have expressed an interest in re-opening and managing a restored Broomhill swimming pool.
The lido was closed in 2002 by Ipswich Borough Council, after being seemed unsafe to open and too expensive to restore.However, the bids could mean that a brighter future is on the horizon for the iconic site.
Councillor Andrew Cann, Culture portfolio-holder, said: “We are encouraged by the increase in interest we received by the closing date of 26th January and now we go on to the next stage of the process.
“All three expressions of interest include retaining a pool on the site and now we are looking for more detailed proposals, including funding and sustainability.
“These details will need to be with us by the end of March.”
