These pictures show progress on a new seafront swimming pool is well under way.

Brighton’s Sea Lanes is expected to open later in the spring.

The 50m pool is on the site of the former Peter Pan playground in Madeira Drive and will be the new National Open Water Swimming Centre of Excellence.

The plans also include 23 carbon-neutral modular units, which will house businesses including a bar, coffee shop, yoga studios, health and fitness facilities, plus retailers that fit with the “overall ethos” of the project.

Sea Lanes director Joe McNulty said the pool should be completed by April or May.

People have already started signing up to become members.

South Downs Leisure, the contractor in charge of Brighton's Sea Lanes swimming pool, released memberships at the end of last year.

For a 12-month contract the price is £50 per month. For a rolling month-by-month basis it costs £55 per month.

There will also be an option for those who wish to pay per swim. The price of this is not yet confirmed but it is expected to be around £10 a time.
