A planning application for the refurbishment of Whitby’s crumbling piers has now been submitted.

Harbours portfolio holder at the borough council, Cllr Mike Cockerill, confirmed this week that it has been submitted.

A decision is expected at the November Planning and Development Committee meeting.

Surveys have taken place this year to determine the extent of damage. It is hoped that the repairs will take place next year, providing the borough council can raise the sufficient funds required.
