Dismantling plan for Colwyn Bay pier approved

by

Part of Colwyn Bay’s Victorian pier will be dismantled in an emergency effort to preserve it.

Councillors voted on Tuesday afternoon to remove the seaward end of the Grade II pier and save and store some of its most historic sections after the balustrade partially collapsed into the sea earlier this month.

An urgent report by Conwy County Council said dismantling work on the pier would take around three weeks. The Cabinet at Bodlondeb warned that further parts of the structure would ‘unravel’ and cause major damage to the steel sections if the matter was not dealt with immediately.

Around £650,000 has already been set aside by the council for the emergency works, although the exact cost remains unknown. The parts of the pier which have already collapsed will also be kept in storage.
