New plans for Birnbeck Pier

Plans to save Weston-super-Mare's derelict Birnbeck Pier have been revealed by a prospective developer.

CNM Estates' proposals includes luxury housing, a new lifeboat station and a heritage centre on the site.

It's hoped income from the development, and a Heritage lottery Grant, would finance the £10million cost of restoration of the pier.
