Ha! Just had a quick scrawl through the thread and I see it's the usual suspects dissing the Lido project. Miserable boring old farts that they are. What sad lives they must lead. Personally, I'm all for it. I think it'll be a wonderful addition to the area for people of all ages to enjoy.

That'll be where the heated element might kick in, I'm thinking?

Pool Temperature..
Quote:
If you’re looking for a perfect pool temperature, not too hot, not too cold, 77 – 82 degrees (25 – 28°C)
Can anyone here give any idea what it costs to maintain a full size outdoor swimming pool throughout the year.
In this part of the UK.

As I understand it the Lido at Brockwell Park is NOT heated. Might br wrong but info from regular swimmer there.

Dulwich Fox, that's what the feasibility study will determine along with developing a full business plan for the operational phase of the project.

This is such a brilliant idea.

Some of us don't like heated pools or swimming inside. I don't think this is a 'hipster' thing Louisa/ Foxy, I'm over 50, not a 'hipster' whatever that means....and have lived at least half of that in ED. Brockwell is great, but it's not my local. The thought of being able to walk 10 mins to an outside pool is inspiring.

My younger friends who train for triathlon would use the lido all year round and the people who swim in the Serpentine all year round are a real mix of ages, ability, cultures (and 'class' if we have to bring such a thing into this). I really hope this happens - it will be good for everyone in this area. Come on get behind a great idea, swimming is a perfect way of keeping fit and healthy - money well spent I think.

I think it's an amazing idea, and would be an amazing location. I am a regular user of Crystal Palace which I think is a great facility, but it's opening hours make it very difficult to get there for daily sessions if you work mon-fri and need to commute to town.

I'd use it.

I'm all for it. Once I relearn how to swim, I'll be in it a lot cos my knees are not enjoying running so much anymore. Brockwell Lido looks fine, yes it's close as well; but honestly I've seen the queue and always been put off (happy to be told it doesn't take long to get in etc).

I never said it was.. I do not use the term 'Hipster'

Hipsters to me were trousers usually flares that had a wide belt.. smiling smiley

I used to swim at Peckham as a kid and also Brockwell Park.

I just feel that the geographic site is not suitable with the heavy traffic and lack of parking.
Brockwell Park has parking and has far safer access.

ETA Saftey must be Priority of any Feasibility Study..

Don't know why you're so negative about it DF: is it going to personally do you any harm if it gets built?

Great news - The total required has been reached, to the feasibility study should now go ahead.
Of course, there will be compromises, and I am sure there will be some opposition, but the overwhelmingly positive nature of this campaign will drown out the local trolls.
Well done everyone.

It's not a case of being negative.. It's a case of being realistic.

I would be happy to see the pool re-built. Obviously a modern design. not to original spec. smiling smiley
The old pool was pretty dire.

It will take a considerable amount of planning and time to complete.
The fact that a Feasability Study is required backs up my concern about whether it can be done.
and at what cost.

DF-- all projects require feasibility studies. This isn't any reflection on the viability of the idea but rather a precursor to raising specific funding to execute the business plan.


Anyhow, there are a number of heated open air pools operating in London (though not locally) so there are clear cases of the economic viability working for this type of venture.

Little article on news today about possible lido. It seems as if it might be a fresh water pool using filtered water from the river Peck - design seems to be done by team who have designed the Thames pool.

messageRe: Peckham Rye Lido
Posted by ChristineC 23 July, 2016 00:26

Might need a lot of filtering - at that point the River Peck runs through the sewer system! It was enclosed by Bazalgette
in the 19C.

messageRe: Peckham Rye Lido
Posted by LondonMix 23 July, 2016 13:12

If you go to the funding page there detail all the plans there. The lido will not be from the river Peck. At a later stage they may create a separate smaller pool alongside the lido that is from the river but that isn't the main proposal.

I found this link on the Friends of Peckham Rye Park website from February. Basically not a lot has happened. I was keen on the project initially but not so much now as the size of the project has grown enormously and it involves building on MOL.

messageRe: Peckham Rye Lido
Posted by Jakido 16 April, 2018 14:39

Thanks, and that link reports a meeting from Jan 2017.

Just wondered, what, if anything is happening following the crowd-funding & Mayoral grant in summer 2016.

Try getting into Brockwell Lido in the summer.... the queues are around the block and back.
I think having another option is fantastic and causes no harm.

If you don't like the sound of it, don't get involved.

I also like the idea of a lido but you do need to protect London’s green space. It’s an ambitious project on a very small space of green land.

Have you tried Charlton Lido? 50m. Heated and lots of space even on sunny days. Walk straight in.

Take care .'an unused corner' of Peckham Rye Common . Does that mean it is currently part of the common ?

Although all this sounds like a great idea you are suggesting buildings on public land . Where will this end ? The council may decide that yes you can have it but you have to also build some luxury flats thus giving them the green light to sell publicly owned green spaces to developers.

Councils have been doing this for the past few years but they must not be allowed to sell off our parks .

I can't see it being feasible. Looking at the space Brockwell lido takes up it would be tiny.
