The Herne Bay Pier Trust approached Mike Oades whilst at Aedas to develop a concept for a combined pier and non-tidal marina to provide a major new attraction for the North Kent coast.

The proposals re-imagined the seaside pier which combined 21st century uses with a sensitive treatment of its architectural heritage. The remaining elements of the original pier head were integrated into the heart of the new pier structure which forms a protective loop around the historic structure. Floating activity pontoons radiate from the central hub.
