Dismantling of the Colwyn Bay Pier should be completed by mid-June.

Work on the listed site has been ongoing since the beginning of the year and a Conwy council spokesperson said the dismantling was proceeding as scheduled.

The spokesperson said: “Originally, we estimated dismantling work would take about 4 months.

“It looks like the dismantling work should be done by mid-June so we weren’t far off – about four and a half months in total – and that includes removing the sections of wall where the murals were painted.”

The Pier is currently in two halves having had the walkway joining the two buildings dismantled already.

Once dismantling work has been completed a new truncated Pier will be erected.

Designers/developers for a truncated Pier, adjoining prom and sea wall area are currently being evaluated and a contractor is expected to be announced before the dismantling process is complete.

The tender process was published on Sell2Walwes last month with applications closing on April 12.

The Colwyn Victoria Pier Trust have been working closely with the Conwy County Borough Council and are currently working to put together their own scheme for the Pier.

Trust chairperson, Mark Roberts, following the groups AGM last month, said the scheme was in its initial phase and was hoping to put it to public consultation as soon as possible as the next step.

Mr Roberts added: "At this stage it's just a concept scheme, which is the initial phase. Once we have something concrete we can go to public consultation because we need all the responses from residents so we can put it into the final scheme.

"That way the public will have confidence in our plans.

"It's not just going to be a long, empty plank, we need to have things in place that people want to use and can enjoy."
