Hastings Pier

Rescued! Hastings Pier.


Closed in 2006 by the council for safety reasons, its Panama-based owner Ravenclaw abandoned it with an outstanding £1.8m mortgage.

A ‘dogged and persistent’, and highly successful, community campaign led Hastings Borough Council to compulsory purchase with a back-to-back agreement. The trust raised £14 million and the renewed pier is due to reopen in 2015.
