Conor and Minister open new Bournemouth Pier Approach

Conor & Dorset Coastal Forum welcomed the Minister for the Northern Powerhouse & Local Growth, Jake Berry MP to Bournemouth for the official opening of the Bournemouth Pier Approach, which had undergone extensive renovations. 
 
Dorset Coastal Connections was granted £5.6m Coastal Communities Funding in April 2017, £1.9m of which was allocated to improvements to Bournemouth Pier Approach.
 
The Minister welcomed the opening by highlighting the efforts of Dorset Coastal Forum & Bournemouth Borough Council who had worked in Partnership in this effort as well as Conor who had spent a great deal of time lobbying to the Secretary of State and Ministers for the funding. 
 
The Pier Approach’s renovation is hoped to offer a renewed attraction to Bournemouth’s coastline, which is believed to bring in significant increases of tourism to the town.
