New lido part of the exciting redevelopment plans for the town of Wirral.


The Wirral Council is drawing up its regeneration agenda for New Brighton for the next 15 years, with the exciting prospect of a new lido for the seaside resort.

A brand new open-air swimming pool is part of the big plans to revitalise a town in Wirral.

Locals are asked for their opinion on the plans.

The Wirral Council said that Our Lido Ltd. wanted to develop a new lido combined with health, wellness and community facilities that could be located in New Brighton.

A new lido could be a major step forward for New Brighton as it seeks to improve its offering in the 2020s and beyond.

New Brighton had an open air swimming pool from 13 June 1934, when it was opened by Viscount Leverhulme, until 1990, when it was irreparably damaged by a storm.

Anita Leech, Chair of the Council’s Economic and Regeneration Committee, said: “Even before the development of Marine Point and the reconstruction of the Flower Pavilion, New Brighton was an extremely popular place to visit with beautiful beaches and seaside attractions.

The council has now commissioned a team to consult with local people about what they would like for their city over the next 15 years.

You can enter your views here until Monday, November 16, 13:00.

“Now we look at the next 15 years and what the future holds for the city. We would like to hear from you what changes or developments you would like to see.

“This is your opportunity to tell us what you think of New Brighton. What you like, what you don’t like about the seaside resort and what you think will help make it an even better place to live, work and visit.

Once the consultation is complete, draft options for revitalising the city will be presented to the public for comment early next year.

The Wirral Council said its goal is to complete the final “master plan” in the spring of 2021.
