'PLANS to build a private health and fitness club complete with lido as part of New Brighton’s regeneration have been scrapped – to make way for a children’s play area.
Neptune Developments have confirmed that the original idea to create a new health club and outdoor swimming pool, will not come to fruition.
Instead in its place will be a large-scale children’s soft play area, while the proposed lido will be a splash pool for youngsters.' Wirral Globe Article here
Quote from Councillor's blog and link:
'You may, or may not be aware but Neptune have had considerable difficulty in getting an organisation to take over and operate the health & fitness facility on the new development. Plan B was always to have a top notch children’s soft play area, probably one of the best in the country.
After much deliberation, the decision has been made to forge ahead with this option and a report is being prepared for Cabinet in early September.
The proposed lido is now likely to become a shallow splash pool facility, suitable for all ages which has the additional benefit of becoming an ice rink during the winter months. Councillor Sue Taylor's Blog
