Isle of Wight pier could be developed

Development plans for a pier on the Isle of Wight have been put before local people to gather their opinions.

The multi-million pound plan to improve Totland Pier got the backing of residents in the area at an open meeting, developers told the Isle of Wight County Press.

Bell Cornwell, on behalf of Farnham Developments, showed off the plans to around 100 people at Totland Pier cafe last week - with new accommodation and beach huts included in the blueprint.

Mike de Courcy from Bell Cornwell said: "The open day went extremely well and it was very important to engage with the public to hear their views, which we will consider before submitting a planning application."

Totland Pier is located close to Freshwater Bay and the Isle of Wight's famous Needles and was first built around 120 years ago, although it underwent a major renovation at the end of the 20th century when the main building was rebuilt.
