Cornish input for famous pier


Cornish expertise has been recruited for the design work on a new approach to Bournemouth Pier.

Cornwall Environmental Consultants (CEC) has been involved in the ambitious Pier Approach project. Proposals, which have been submitted for planning consent, focus on water features and landscaping to reconnect the Lower Gardens with the beach for the first time in over 100 years.
