People fighting for the regeneration of Birnbeck Pier have met with representatives from the Heritage Lottery Fund to discuss the future of the derelict landmark.

The Birnbeck Regeneration Trust, accompanied by a North Somerset Council representative, was given advice on how to prepare an application for funding and received tips on the type of funding packages the Heritage Lottery Fund would normally review.

A spokesman for the Trust said: “The Heritage Lottery Fund provided excellent guidance.

“During the coming weeks the Trust will be launching a major funding programme, which requires public support, in order to save the pier.

“A public meeting will also be announced to update the public on progress so far and what is required to make the project successful.”
