Hope for Broomhill Lido

We’re excited to announce that Fusion Lifestyle has submitted a funding bid for Grade-II listed Broomhill Lido under the HLF’s Heritage Enterprise Grant. Since 2015 we’ve worked with Fusion to redevelop this historic Lido in Ipswich, from the project’s early stages, which has culminated in a second round HLF submission.

This £6.4m project will restore the currently derelict pool, bringing it back into use, conserving its historic fabric and adding a suite of new health facilities. This will be accompanied by programming that will allow visitors to engage with the pool’s rich sporting and community heritage.

Our work in this most recent phase involved community and stakeholder consultation, and partnership building, resulting in the development of an Activity Statement and an Economic Impact Assessment.

We’re looking forward to seeing this important community resource spring back to life. The outcome of the bid is expected for early Winter 2017.
