Work at South Parade Pier is progressing well and the underlying structure is now secure against the ravages of the weather.
Local Lib Dem Councillor Matthew Winnington visited the pier recently with the owners and was impressed by the amount of work done. "I was pleasantly surprised when visiting the pier to see the level of progress made on the decking, the structure of the building on the pier and the metal work below. I'm really looking forward to the pier being reopened and discussed with the owners their plans for it. There's still a lot of work to do but having seen what is being done the future for the pier looks bright."
