Future of Colwyn Bay Pier to be Discussed

Wednesday 24th August 2016

The future of Colwyn Bay’s Victoria Pier will be discussed at an upcoming meeting. The crumbling pier has been the subject of much speculation from local people keen to know its fate.

Mark Roberts, chairman of the Colwyn Bay Victoria Pier Trust, unveiled his plans earlier this year to have the pier to dismantled in order to examine all of its components and their viability. Mr Roberts has now said a meeting to discuss the plans has finally been agreed between the trust’s steering group and Conwy County Borough Council’s pier project board, but the date is yet to be finalised.

He said: “Quite a lot of work has been going on in the background, we’re trying to organise a meeting with the council between our steering group and the council’s pier project board – we’ve had an agreement to meet.

“Our case is progressing – We’re developing the scheme in more detail and undertaking a series of informal discussions with the council who have been very positive to date.

“We’ve engaged with experts in respective fields to undertake reports and assessments on our behalf, one or two of them world-leading.”

Mr Roberts added the trust has also been in discussion with CADW.

A spokesperson for Conwy County Council said: “Representatives of Conwy’s Victoria Pier Project Board have agreed to meet with the Steering Group (Town Council & Pier Trust) – arrangements are underway, with a date to be confirmed.”
