‘Too much bitterness’ cited for breakdown in talks

Campaigners have ditched their plans to rebuild the town’s famous pier into a multimillion marina, and have vowed to find a new site along the coast. It follows a public meeting on Sunday, where options for rebuilding the pier were discussed, but no agreement between the Pier Trust and former Pier Rebuild group could be reached. Marina champion Andy Newell says the group will now Investigate whether they could build a new structure off Neptune’s Arm or even in front at the Kings Hall. He said:

“There’s too much bitterness between us and the existing group, but I am keen to keep the project going.”
