Swanage Pier Regeneration
SP are very pleased to have been chosen through a limited competition as Lead Designer for Round 2 of the Swanage Pier Regeneration Project. We are looking forward to working with the Swanage Pier Trust and volunteers to improve the welcome and access to the pier and refurbish grade II listed Marine Villas.
The Victorian pier looks as glorious today as it might have over 100 years ago thanks to the Swanage Pier Trust, an independent charity funded by voluntary donations with just two paid members of staff, and their hard working volunteers and supporters. This short video shows how the pier got back on its feet after storm damage on the night of Monday 11th March 2013. Have a look at the Trust's website to find out about the history of the pier and their efforts to raise £400,000 in match funding.
