Withernsea Pier Funding

Fundraising for the Withernsea Pier Project has come to an end as the project is no longer viable. Se our news section for more details.


WPPA Funding Bar

In January 2021 we reached our funding goal of £240,000 to build the Viewing Platform which is the first stage of the new pier. Construction was due to start in March 2021. In February East Riding of Yorkshire Council demanded that we make changes to the construction drawings. The changes caused delays to the start of construction and a significant price increase, and we now need an extra £60,000 to start the construction.
See Pier association news page for more details.
