Bournemouth’s iconic seafront undergoes further enhancement works

Bournemouth

Transformation of Pier Approach continues this month when the second phase of improvement works get underway as part of Bournemouth’s ongoing commitment to developing a world class seafront.

The regeneration of this key seafront gateway is a continuation from the initial £4m investment scheme delivered in the winter of 2014/15 on the eastern side of Pier Approach.

This next phase, which is expected to be complete in spring 2018, will focus on the western side and is being funded from a £1.9m grant from the government’s Coastal Communities Fund.

Works include extending the public realm surfacing, providing additional landscaping and new state-of-the-art bins which are semi submerged and allow for greater volumes of waste to be disposed of before they need emptying.

Councillor John Beesley, leader of Bournemouth Council, said: “Pier Approach is our number one gateway to our seafront attracting millions of visitors each year. I am delighted that the investment is being made to complete our aspirations for this flagship location to ensure that Bournemouth’s ambition to be a leading coastal destination is met.”

He added: “Pier Approach has already benefited from a £4m investment programme providing a contemporary gateway from the gardens to the seafront. This second phase of works to improve the eastern end by extending the attractive paving, new planting and providing clever waste storage solutions, should complement the first scheme perfectly.”

Main works will begin on site after the Bournemouth Marathon Festival weekend. Full pedestrian access to all attractions, beach and promenade will be maintained throughout and all businesses in the area will be open as usual during the works.

Ahead of work starting there will be some preliminary activity taking place in the area such as establishing a site compound and removal of existing planting which will be looked after by Bournemouth Parks and returned after works have finished.

The scheme is funded through the partnership portfolio, ‘Dorset Coastal Connections – people and places’, which is delivering 18 coastal projects across Dorset to benefit the economy of the Dorset coast as a whole. The portfolio is funded by the Coastal Communities Fund and co-ordinated by Dorset Coast Forum.

Natalie Poulter, project co-ordinator for Dorset Coastal Connections, said: “I’m delighted to see this project underway. It will make a significant and positive difference to the visitor experience at Pier Approach, and really modernises this major access to Bournemouth’s seafront, which is important in projecting a vibrant, contemporary feel to boost this coastal community’s economic future.”
