“Glowing from a wonderful swim and tour of Forest Hill Pools – everything I would have wished for and expected to see. The significance of the occasion comes from the aspirations of the many local people who have worked so hard to see this building saved and now re-developed. I am absolutely delighted to see the wonderful job that has been done redeveloping the pools to modern standards, while retaining features like the historic Victorian frontage.
This is a striking development but perhaps the most important dimension is that it is the result of joint working between local stakeholders and the Council to achieve a shared goal. Architects Roberts Limbrick and building contractors Willmott Dixon have carried out a magnificent job in delivering this project on schedule and providing a sustainable future for such a well-loved local building that will benefit the community for many years to come.”Cllr Chris Best Representing Sydenham and Chair of the Stakeholder Group for Forest Hill Pools
