Brighton’s Prince Regent swimming complex remains closed due to flooding Brighton News

A SWIMMING swimming pool was unable to open on Monday due to “heavy flooding,” the council said.

The Prince Regent Swimming Complex in Church Street, Brighton, suffered significant damage due to flooding over the Easter weekend.

Brighton and Hove City Council said the complex will require major repairs before residents can use the facilities safely.

A spokesperson said: “We understand that it will be a disappointment for those using the facilities, but we have received assurances that the other six recreation centers and gymnasiums in the city have opened as planned on Monday.

“These include the King Alfred Recreation Center and St. Lukes Swimming Pool and guests who would normally swim at the Prince Regent can use these facilities in the meantime.

“Freedom Leisure is also working to relocate as many swimming lessons and clubs as possible to these pools, in order to minimize inconvenience to their customers.

“We are working hard with Freedom Leisure to review the fastest and safest options for repair work.

“While the exact timing of the work is yet to be determined, we will do our best to allow the reopening for Stage 3 of the central government reopening on May 17.”

Darryl Keech, Freedom Leisure Area Manager, said: “It’s so disappointing not to reopen Prince Regent as we were on the right track and were looking forward to Monday.

“We hope customers will be using King Alfred and St. Lukes until we can reopen Prince Regent.”
