ITEM NO. 9

Rush Harbour

Question: Councillor B. Dennehy

"To ask the Chief Executive to outline the improvement works planned for Rush

Harbour for the capital budget allocation in terms of upgrading and maintenance

work in 2018."

Reply:

No specific improvement works have been identified for action in 2018. It was

intended to replace some missing stones and repoint others in 2017 but during a

preparatory examination it was noted that there is some “scouring” taking place

of fill behind the face of the pier. It is intended to have a specialist company

carry out a thorough examination to identify what works might be required. This

works will most likely take place in 2018.

It was also intended to explore how the surface of the platform might be

improved to make it more accessible to the public. However as it is a listed

structure identifying an appropriate methodology has proved difficult and work

is ongoing in trying to agree how improvements could be achieved while

respecting its status.
