Planning Permission Granted

3 Minute read
Lido-Logo-RGB-2

We are thrilled to announce that we have been granted planning permission for the redevelopment of the lido car park and, most importantly, for stage 3 of our sustainability plan, which includes the installation of solar panels. These panels will generate an impressive 93% of our current annual electricity usage.
A huge thanks to the Government’s Swimming Pool Support Fund via Sport England and the Cheltenham Zero Business Grant for their financial contributions. We’ll be raising additional funds throughout 2024 to support this project.

We’d like to thank everyone who supported our planning application by writing letters of support, with special thanks going to Rappor, All Ecology, MHP Arboriculture, Jeremy Lake, Cotswold Energy and especially SF Planning, who’ve again impressively guided our application through the planning process and Cheltenham Borough Council for awarding us the permissions required to implement the project.

Stay tuned for more updates as we bring this exciting project to life!

    How satisfying is the unveiling of our small pool cover 😍

The weather might not be the best so far this summer, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying a swim. Our main pool is heated to 25 degrees Celsius, and the small pool is a toasty 30 degrees Celsius. 

So come on over, take a dip, enjoy a delicious coffee and pastry, and catch-up with friends in our welcoming community!

There’s no better place to relax and have fun…

    We are delighted to announce our latest sponsor of our community swim programme, The Exmouth Arms.

“We believe swimming lessons for children are so important for health, safety and well-being, and we are proud to help this amazing initiative’, says The Exmouth Arms.

Affectionately known as The Exmouth, this esteemed establishment is located at the heart of the bustling Bath Road, Cheltenham. Renowned for its excellent selection of wines, fine pints of Arkell’s ale, and superb fresh pub food, the Exmouth Arms offers much more.

With a vibrant calendar of events including live music, special dining evenings and quiz nights, it is a cornerstone of the community. Their pub garden, complete with a horsebox bar and wood-fired pizza oven, is the perfect place to enjoy sunny afternoons.

We invite businesses and individuals alike to join us in this worthy cause and help ensure every child in our community has the opportunity to learn to swim safely.
