Famous architect offers to help Lido

The architect Sir Terence Conran who owns "The Design Museum" in London has backed plans for the renovation of Saltdean Lido. It's understood that his architectural practice in Brighton has drawn up restoration plans for the 1930s structure.

"The art deco era is unique in British building history. Saltdean Lido is a beautiful iconic building which should be preserved. We are delighted the lido is back in council ownership and we look forward to having the opportunity to work further on the campaign's plans to successfully run the lido and to restore this fine building and facilities to their former glory. We would also like to pay tribute to the Saltdean Lido campaign which has been instrumental in making the decision a reality."
