Crovie Pier Repairs Tender Process Completed

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed further progress being made by the Crown Estate towards carrying out repairs to the iconic Crovie Pier.

The Crown Estate has advised the SNP MSP that it has completed the tender process to identify a suitable contractor to undertake the repairs, which will start in the coming weeks. The quarter million-pound project will be carried out by George Leslie Limited as main contractor for works on the Category-B listed structure. The scheme will be managed by Wallace Stone Consulting Civil Engineers, who also designed it.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“It has been a long slow process to get the Crown Estate to acknowledge their responsibility for the care and maintenance of Crovie Pier but I am pleased that years of pressure from the local community are about to pay off.

“Crovie Pier, as well as being a listed structure, is an iconic piece of Banffshire’s tourism heritage and I’m delighted that its future now looks more secure.”

Works will include repairing the seaward end of the pier by encasing it with concrete and repairing cracks in the walls and deck.
