Seaside pleasure piers are unique heritage assets and flagship tourism attractions at Britain’s coastal resorts. But piers are increasingly under threat: climate change, rising costs of maintenance and repair of these ageing structures, funding issues, and a global pandemic all present challenges to their future longevity.
In this talk, examples of ‘best practice’ piers are outlined and Anya identifies some of the critical success factors required to ensure that piers not only survive, but thrive, in the 21st century.
The first part of the talk will be livestreamed on this page and available to all. Afterwards, Anya will be continuing the discussion and taking questions via Zoom. For joining details, please click the 'Book now' button above.
This event has been organised by the Society's South region committee.
