‘Light at the end of the tunnel’ after Birnbeck meeting
PUBLISHED: 10:00 05 July 2015
BIRNBECK Pier’s owner has met with a group of trustees to see what can be done to save the crumbling structure.
Wahid Samady, chairman of CNM Estates, met Birnbeck Regeneration Trust members last week.
Trust project manager Richie Griffin said: “The meeting was of great success with a working plan agreed for further monthly meetings to review and agree a successful outcome for the pier and surrounding area.
“The trust now hope with the openness of Mr Samady at the meeting there is light at the end of the tunnel and the old lady will be saved.”
The content of discussions is being kept confidential, but North Somerset councillor Richard Nightingale says he is encouraging Mr Samady to submit a formal planning application for the pier.
