Tropicana Swimming Pool

Tropicana Swimming Pool


Weston-super-Mare, United Kingdom (GB)
The Tropicana located half way along the sea front is now derelict, but once provided an outdoor swimming pool (Lido) complex. A private developer, Henry Boot, has been selected to take forward the re-development of the Tropicana. Contracts for the new Life Station@Tropicana development were exchanged in March 2007 and will include a 96 bedroom hotel, indoor pool, cinema, bowling alley, restaurants and bars. Re-development of the Tropicana has been beset by delays and controversy, As of August 2008 final plans have not been submitted. Before contracts were placed a group of local residents challenged the council over its decision to appoint Henry Boot and asked to put forward their own proposals for the site.
