The Cabinet considered a report of Executive Director (Adults and Communities) outlining some significant improvements to the Pier visitor offer to be in place for the 2021 season.
1 That the proposed improvements to the Pier Head visitor offer as set out in the submitted report, be approved
2. That the medium and longer term plans for the Pier, be noted.
Reasons for Decisions:
A programmed and proactive approach to maintenance and management of the structure will reduce the possibility of unplanned closures and higher costs. Co-designing the visitor offer with users will increase participation and income opportunities.
Investment is needed to increase the Pier’s visitor appeal. The timing could be extended but this is not recommended as these proposals are already a phased approach.
Note: The decisions in 1 and 2 above constitute an Executive Function. The decision in 3 above constitutes a Council Function.
