Council leader confirms cobbles will stay on West Pier

Council leader Tudor Evans has announced that cobbles will remain on West Pier as part of a major restoration project.

He said: “The Council has to repair West Pier so it does not collapse into the sea and to do that vital work we need to lift the cobbles. The plan was to re-lay the cobbles nearby on the Barbican but over the last few days it has been made abundantly clear to me that people want to see the cobbles put straight back on West Pier once repairs have been made. I have listened to what has been said and I have made it clear to the project team that the cobbles must remain on West Pier – and they will.”
