    I must say, after 22 years of skeg I visited Bognor at Christmas for the first time, but after a couple of years of the new pool at skeg bognors looked so dated! A mess from behind, and the bowl was borded up and half dismantled, if they replaced splash I would make it my new Butlins of choice actually!

    I've just come back from Bognor, I agree the pool is very dated compared to Skegness. The pool is nearly the same from when I last went Bognor 18 years ago. Master Blaster is closed there now, and looked partially removed. Also the blue flume is totally gone, all that is left is a section sticking through the wall

    I think it was always on the cards, especially since the other sites have had more recent make overs

    I wonder if this is the same plan that they were considering 2009, which was to have a new pool on the sea front and open to the public?

    According to the Bognor Observer, the staff chalets in the former blue camp are going to be demolished to make space for the new pool.

    The planning application has now been submitted to Arun district council.

    Why does it still cone up as south coast world? And are those mainly staff accoms? Seems a lot of beds to loose, but glad they are pulling that pool down just hope the same company as skeg don't do it as there's things there that havnt worked since it was built
