The remarkable site is in north Weston-super-Mare and was completed in 1866, and was designed by the great pier builder Eugenius Birch. Over the years it has played host to thousands and thousands of holiday makers, Paddlesteamers used to ferry people to and from Wales with the last journey made in 1979 and even the Beatles spent time at Birnbeck back in the day. The Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) has a fully operational station on the island which has been there for 125 years.

Urban Splash wants to create a fantastic development with public access, new attractions and facilities to draw more residents, workers and tourists to Weston-super-Mare.
