    Work to restore Southport Pier is progressing well with construction of a new retail unit underway.

    The overall project is due to finish in December 2018.

    Other works include:
    • The creation of new retail and food units
    • New extension to the Pier pavilion
    • New steps linking the Pier deck with the beach below
    • Improvements to railings around Marine Lake
    • Wrapped up by a comprehensive visitor welcome package

    Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Labour Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said:

    “We are delighted the works on Southport Pier has started which will truly transform the attraction.

    “The works will see major improvements that will improve access, add new uses while enhancing and protecting The Pier for years to come.

    “We firmly believe the money being invested will continue to be a critical element in Sefton’s visitor economy offer that attracts millions of visitors every year.

    “The Pier project is an important element of the Southport Development Framework, which was key in attracting this funding. Along with Sefton’s own investment, it clearly shows that Sefton is open for business as we continue to value and support the growth of the visitor economy.”

    Bart would never get dirt on his shoes or dust on his signature blue suit! Although he could stand on the pier and point (or peer)down....

    No anti Sefton but it would be nice for the pier to be open longer from Easter onwards and the café to be improved in the Pavilion.

    It’s too early for an appearance by Barton. He’ll no doubt turn up just as the work is nearing a completion, with his personal photographer of course, expressing his appreciations, and telling us all, how his tireless and unstinting efforts of behalf of his constituents, have saved the pier from ruin.

    This work is being carried out by Sefton Council to improve our heritage assets. Presumably our local Lib Dem councillors will be slamming and blasting this project as a Bootle Labour folly.
