New lighting and a range of refurbishments are set to feature in the second phase of renovations for Deal Pier.

The new £600,000 investment will include work to refurbish the clock and art sculpture above the pier entrance.

There will also be the installation of an electronic public information screen showcasing Deal and the area, and replacing and improving lighting to frame the pier structure while minimizing energy consumption.

Other works would include enhancing the appearance of the pier shelters, general painting and repairs, the installation of an electronic visitor counter, replacing the CCTV system, and key concrete repairs to the pier structure.

Dover District Council will discuss the works at its meeting next Monday morning.

The second phase is set to take place during the financial year 2019/20.

Work already completed under the first phase, include investment to renew the pier seating, replacing the pier surfacing, repainting the metalwork, renewing the gas main, and refurbishing the pumped drainage system.

Repairs to the lower deck are also nearing completion.

The new café restaurant Deal Pier Kitchen also opened on January 4.

The first £500,000 phase of refurbishment works was announced in 2018, following the celebration of Deal Pier’s Diamond Anniversary in November 2017.

Cllr Trevor Bartlett, DDC cabinet member for corporate assets said: “Deal Pier is the jewel in the crown of Deal Seafront, and is a popular site for local people and visitors. We are delighted to invest in upgrading this fantastic amenity, to provide an enhanced visitor experience, and to make it fit for the next 60 years.”
