The final pieces of the Colwyn Bay Pier have been dismantled.

The final parts of the Victoria Pier were set to come down this evening marking the end of the site which has been standing on the Colwyn Bay beach for more than 100 years.

Passers by on the Colwyn Bay's Promenade stopped to take one last look at the remaining pieces of the Pier today as J Freely finished the dismantling.

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."
