Of course it's over, the fact that there is very little left of it kind of proves the point.

"The long running saga of Colwyn Bay Pier"    :( :( :(

Colwyn Bay's pier can now be pulled down after consent from the Welsh Government.
Conwy County Borough Council has received permission to dismantle Victoria Pier after a long running battle over its future.
The Listed Building Consent from the Welsh Government allows the Council to dismantle the structure and redevelop a truncated pier.

Council Chairman, Cllr Brian Cossey, said: "We’d like to thank the Minister for giving the application the careful consideration needed to reach this decision.
“Over recent years the Council has been quite clear about the deteriorating state of the pier and the significant risk it posed to public health and safety.

Meanwhile, Hastings pier, owned and run by the community, has just won yet another award.

The council must be so proud.

The unfortunate thing is that Hastings Pier is now struggling financially, entirely thanks to the architects lack of business understanding. I listened to an interview with him on Radio 4 the other day and he said something along the lines of 'I wanted the pier to have lots of open spaces rather than buildings'. The bit he didn't understand about piers is that the buildings contribute the revenue thats necessary to fund the continued maintenance to a pier, whilst vast areas of decking contribute not a penny.  &shake&
