Fleetwood Development Trust have made a rival bid for a replacement for the burned out pier. The new building will be a Heritage Pier and will be for the benefit of tourists and local folk alike.
The mainstay of a series of attractions will include the following.
- A rolling maritime heritage exhibition.
- A planetarium/cinema.
- A debating chamber for the newly formed Town Council (this will also be available to local interest groups for meetings and displays).
- A cafeteria/coffee shop.
- A viewing platform to allow visitors to make full use of the panoramic vista of Morecambe Bay.
Local schools will have the opportunity to participate in projects such as The Jason Project.
And much more.
Several large corporations have expressed interest in supporting the project and an artist’s impression shows the projected building.
