Planning application submitted to dismantle Colwyn Bay's Victoria Pier

The planning and listed building consent applications for permission to dismantle Colwyn Bay's derelict Victoria Pier have been submitted.

A Conwy council spokesperson says the applications request permission to dismantle the Victoria Pier and redevelop a truncated pier, "whilst recording and storing elements of heritage and/or structural value in a safe place for potential re-use in a future restoration by a third party."

The pier partially collapsed at the start of February, and suffered further damage in storms later in the month.

A fire also broke out in Marchwhile dismantling work was being carried out.

Storm Doris caused a further section of the pier to collapse in March

In recent years, campaigners had fought to regenerate the structure.

Conwy Council says the application also covers the dismantling work that has already been carried out.
