Conditional planning permission has been granted for the installation of floodlights at London Fields Lido, together with an extension of its opening hours from 6.30am to 9pm each day.
As well as new floodlights the lighting below the water, on the long sides of the pool, will also be replaced with more reliable LED lights.
As the Lido is on common land, the Council has applied to Planning Inspectorate for Common Land Consent. If it's approved, work is expected to start in September.
