Clacton Pier will be closed to the public tomorrow (Monday March 26) for essential work to be carried out as part of the £4million development taking place to improve facilities at the landmark attraction.


A large crane will be putting the roofing panels back on the main concourse and it felt that it would be in the best interests of safety if only those who need to be there are on site that day.


Pier Director Billy Ball said that it is very rare to close all parts of the Pier but the decision was taken in consultation with the contractors and the project management team.


\"It was felt that it was the best way to complete this important task safely and so we can move forwards with the next stages of the development,\" he said.


\"We apologise for an inconvenience this causes but we will be back open on Tuesday (March 27) and then fully for the Easter break with all rides up and running.\"


It is anticipated that the Pier’s main entrance will be open again in time for Easter.


The major scheme involves a new £500,000 adventure golf course, a £500,000 children\'s play area, coffee shop first floor dodgems - all of which will be open in July. The remainder of the work will be completed early in 2019.
