Background The Cleveland Pools Trust Ltd have received a funding award from HLF to develop the exciting project of re-opening the existing outdoor Georgian bathing Pool in Bath, which was originally built in 1815. The site is listed grade II* and is part of the Bath World Heritage Site. The site was last used for swimming in the mid 1980’s and is thought to be the oldest purpose designed Lido in the UK, possibly Europe. The project has evolved from the efforts of a committed local group who have fought to bring the site back into use as a naturally water treated open air swimming facility to serve the local community, adding a new dimension to Baths tourist offer away from the core of the City. A key decision that must be made early on in this project will be whether the trust is able to deliver its aspiration for a naturally treated non-chemically treated pool. Dependent upon the method(s) used there is concern that a natural option may limit the number of swimmers per day which might adversely affect the business plan viability. Very careful consideration will therefore need to be given as to how to obtain the best advice from the appointed consultant design team, and perhaps request that an initial assessment of the relevant factors involved be provided at tender stage to provide convincing evidence of an understanding of the projects challenges. The Trust requires an Architect consultant to provide design services for the refurbishment of the swimming pool facilities and the on-site Grade II* listed building.
