Stratford Park Lido, Stroud Business Case Development

Stratford Park Lido in Stroud was built in the 1930s. Despite being a local icon, the unheated outdoor pool was rarely used by the local community, with annual visitor numbers of under 8,000. A group of local volunteers formed a Project Team to help encourage the District Council to review the situation at the lido. Tricolor was commissioned to undertake a feasibility study and options appraisal on behalf of Stroud District Council and the Project Team to help provide future options for the pool.

The people of Stroud are passionate about their Lido, with almost 2,000 respondents to consultation surveys. The community consultation and external evaluation shaped the three options that formed the basis of the feasibility study. The findings were then presented to the local people at a Feedback and Evaluation Open Day.

The main challenge for this project was to understand the complex relationship between the project team and the other stakeholders. This was overcome by regular communication with the Project Team, and ensuring that stakeholders were regularly kept up to date with the status of the project.
