Following several incidents over the last few years on the North pier ABP “Associated British Ports” have said they are going to install a guardrail along the beachside of the pier for 150m. This will allow safe access to the first section of the pier. The remaining 250m of pier will be fenced off to prevent access to the seaward section of the pier.
This pier has been used by fishermen for decades, so this will be quite a blow. NPT council are discussing with ABP the possibility of re-instating some sort of safe public access to the seaward end of the structure in the future.
