Pier Approach

Creating a World Class seafront

Phase 2 improvements

Work started in Autumn 2017 on the second phase of improvements to Pier Approach as part of the Council’s plans to create a World Class seafront.

The improvements, funded by £1.9million Coastal Communities grant from central Government, will see further public realm surfacing carried out in the western side of Pier Approach, continuing on from the first scheme delivered in 2014/15, plus landscaping enhancements and state of the art waste bins installed.

The regeneration of this key seafront gateway is a continuation from the initial £4million investment scheme delivered in the winter of 2014/15 on the eastern side of Pier Approach.

Work is progressing well on Phase 2 and by Easter the seafront was able to host a Victorian fair. 

Businesses in the area are open as usual throughout and work is set to complete shortly.
