We are delighted to share the news that temporary repairs to our pier will be carried out by Alastair Cook on Thursday 28th November.
The main objective is to fill the two holes which have grown on the upper part of the east side. They are being filled with stone.
The structural engineering and QS survey mentioned below has now been done. We expect their full proposals for reconstruction before Christmas.
All this work is carried out with the hotel owners approval.
Once it’s done we will post an update with photos, and, if you’re around, pop down and see for yourself.
There is a long road to go yet. If you wish to join us, offer help, support etc, our membership form can be downloaded from the Contact page on this website. It’s £1 to join. We now have 380 village members.
As part of Largo Communities Together (LCT), the Largo Pier Group headed by Jimmy Simpson and a very able team of local people who wish to see our pier restored have been working away in the backgroung.
So far, they have secured a Memorandum of Understanding with the owner, £8000 to complete the preliminary civil engineering assessment, and have just contracted with a local firm to do temporary repairs before the winter sets in.
The Pier group are all local volunteers, there is still a mountain to climb to secure funds for rebuilding, we do understand the enormity of the task. We have completed some community consultations over the summer during Largo Arts Week and have had meetings with residents in the last 6 weeks who are directly affected by the pier.
All their views have been recorded to help with the applications for future re-build funding. Anyone can input their views or make offers of help by emailing the Pier Subgroup from the Contact page on this website.
