Eastbourne Pier – Four new buildings on the seafront landmark

A third of Eastbourne Pier was destroyed when a fire broke out on Wednesday 30 July 2014 I had the privilege to draw plans to replace some of the buildings lost in the 2014 fire on Eastbourne Pier Grade 2* listed building when the new owner Mr Gulzar and his dedicated team appointed me to help with the project.

He wanted to obtain planning permission for four new buildings on the seafront landmark. Two of those would be kiosks to replace the retail shops lost in the blaze and the other two would be on the open deck area and similar to the existing Victorian tea rooms.

The proposed buildings will increase footfall and business and go some way to protecting and enhancing the longevity and viability of the pier.

Planning applications have been granted for the new buildings on the Pier and Building Regulations Full Plans application with structural calculations have been submitted to Building Control. Building Plan Design Ltd is proud to be part of this iconic landmark in Eastbourne East Sussex.
