MP asks residents to fill in Grange Lido consultation

July 29, 2013 1:46 PM

Grange LidoGrange's MP Tim Farron is asking residents in the town and on the Cartmel Peninsula to get involved in a consultation about the future of the historic Lido.

South Lakeland District Council (SLDC), in partnership with Grange Over Sands Town Council, are inviting ideas to support Grange-Over-Sands Lido bring back into use. This survey is a part of the first stage of the process. If a sustainable use can be identified and funds secured (such as Heritage Lottery Funding) this could be possible. SLDC would need to consider the Lido being open all year round, offering an exciting and broad programme of events, activities, classes and more for all ages.

Grange Lido was designed by Grange over Sands urban district council surveyor Bernard Smith. It closed it's doors to the public in 1993. In 2012 the building was given grade II listed status by English Heritage.

The questionnaire about the future of the Lido can be found here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BznOinbnnOSjcmdMYkR3UUMzVkE/edit and the consultation runs until the 1st September.

Tim said: "The Lido is an art-deco gem and if we can restore it to it's old glory that would be fantastic! It is now one a small handful of seaside lidos in Britain not pulled down or concreted over.

"But what is more important is that the residents are heard and that we can find out what they want to happen. I will work with Grange Town Council, SLDC and the community to make sure we get the best outcome for local residents."

    If you are a resident of the Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
