Hastings Pier :: TQ8108
Opened 1872 - Closed 2007 - Length 910ft

The pier was closed in 2006 and 2007 due to structural decay, and was due to be restored after the council had completed a compulsory purchase order.

On 5th October 2010, the pier was set alight by arsonists destroying most of the buildings. This was just hours after a competition was opened to redesign the pier. Despite taking four days to put out, the pier itself was said to be structurally sound, and the competition was still run, with a firm chosen.

In November 2012 a 11.4million lottery grant was awarded towards the pier rebuild. The total cost is only estimated at 13.9 million as the accommodation will be signicantly smaller than its original form.

It is set to reopen in March 2016.
