Pier build­ings to be de­mol­ished

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - News -

ALL build­ings above deck level on Wey­mouth’s Plea­sure Pier will be de­mol­ished to pre­pare for works to strengthen the struc­ture.

A re­port to the har­bour board says that the works are ‘ur­gent’ after re­cent storms loos­ened green­heart fend­ers, es­pe­cially on the sea­ward side.

It is hoped to start the de­mo­li­tion work at the end of Jan­uary.

De­mo­li­tion and other costs have been put at £35,000, money which will be taken from the pier’s re­serves ac­count.

Fol­low­ing the de­mo­li­tion a new kiosk will be built on the pier which will be leased out. Work will also be un­der­taken to ap­ply a bet­ter sur­face to the deck­ing and to re­in­state and up­grade the cur­rent hand rail­ing to im­prove its strength and ap­pear­ance.
