Sea Lanes Brighton are accelerating their plans to open a 50m National Open Water Swimming Centre on Brighton seafront in 2020 following feedback from the local community.

A Summer Pop Up at Sea Lanes Brighton saw thousands of visitors enjoy yoga, guided sea swims and open water events and helped grow local businesses The Body Hub Brighton, About Balance, Bison Beer and Brighton Beachbox.

Joe McNulty, Director at Sea Lanes Brighton said:

We are so grateful to the Brighton community for embracing Sea Lanes Brighton and the Summer Pop Up activity. We have been able to gain a better understanding of the local appetite for future water based activities and want to bring forward the opening of the 50m pool by 5 years to fulfil the needs of the Brighton people.

Sea Lanes Brighton was granted planning permission in April 2019 to transform Madeira Drive with a 25m swimming pool and 39 small business units.

Joe McNulty, Director at Sea Lanes Brighton continued:

Currently the nearest 50m pool to Brighton is over 20 miles away and we want to change this. We are working closely with Brighton & Hove City Council to revise the plans so we can begin the transformation of the seafront and provide much needed swimming facilities for the local community.

Sea Lanes Brighton will reveal 2020 plans shortly and if you would like to have your say on the new swimming facilities at Sea Lanes, complete this survey.
