Work on the substructure repairs of Hastings Pier will be starting in the next few weeks as the Hastings Pier Charity takes ownership of the structure.
The charity was formally granted ownership of the historic site on Wednesday 14th August 2013. Funding for the project was secured in major part through the Heritage Lottery Fund earlier in 2013.
The first phase of dRMM’s scheme will include below deck repairs, new deck and balustrades, the redevelopment of the surviving Old Pavilion into a restaurant and the provision of a new visitor centre with a roof top viewing terrace. Aspirations for future phases include reinstatement of banjos and landing stage and the provision of a sliding timber canopy that supports a seasonal calendar of events and animates the skyline.
