The Haggerston Baths have sadly been boarded up for the last 15 years, but the derelict old building might soon be getting a new lease of life. The Grade II-listed building opened in 1904 as a public pool but it was closed in 2000 because the council couldn’t afford to keep it open. It's still in desperate need of some TLC but the council have now called for ideas of what to do with the building. Proposals include turning it into a hotel, an arts venue, a brewery, offices, flats, or just giving the existing swimming pool a well-needed facelift, which would please the Save Haggerston Pool group, who have been campaigning to reopen the building as a pool since it closed. If you want to have your say, the council are holding a meeting to decide the building's fate next week on October 8.
The meeting will be at the VLC Centre on October 8 at 7pm.
