Transformation of Pier Approach
Bournemouth Council’s exciting plans to improve and transform Pier Approach have been completed and the area now provides a vibrant and contemporary welcome to visitors and residents alike.
New Features for Pier Approach include:
- ‘Virtually’ reconnecting the Bourne Stream to the sea over Pier Approach using landscaping and water play features
- Building a new information point to replace the seafront office, and a complementary shelter for public use and informal events
- Colourful and innovative lighting to encourage visitors to stay longer and add to the atmosphere during events at The Waterfront space
- Landscaping features in keeping with the history and geology of Pier Approach
Pier Approach is one of the first sites to benefit from the detailed plans of the Seafront Strategy – an ambitious 20-year strategy to develop a world-class seafront for Bournemouth. The Seafront Strategy identifies opportunities to introduce better facilities for residents and visitors to enjoy, and help to secure and grow Bournemouth’s £462M tourist sector, which currently employs over 11,000 people.
