As far as i know CCBC are spending the windfarm money on other things so the money put aside for the landing platform is dwindling.

I believe the situation may be worse that that, Wrex.

From what I can gather, the relatively small amount budgeted for the landing stage renovation is being eaten into very severely by 'officialdom'

Apparently, there are various consultants, structural engineers, surveyors, divers, and other entities taking a slice of the cash before a single penny can be spent on the physical work itself.

I believe that CCBC are entirely to blame or the wasted time and money.  &shake&

I've been assured by a senior CCBC official that the Landing Stage Project is on target, a Tender Document is currently being issued, and the work is expected to be completed by Easter 2013.

Linked is a further article about the sale of Southsea Pier, (and others)

It is interesting to note that 11.4 million of lottery funding has been awarded to Hastings Pier.

Can you imagine what wonders could be developed on Llandudno Pier with that kind of investment?
Sadly, that will never happen whilst in private hands.

Perhaps the eventual fate of all Piers will be ownership by a Trust or Charity?

Hmm, it seems that the repairs to the Landing Stage need not be rushed, as the Balmoral will not be sailing at all in 2013:

I note it says they are investigating the possiblity of  Waverley sailing in areas she has been absent from over the last few years.

Could this be Llandudno ?

I don't think that's relevent Dave, as the work was mainly being financed by the wind farm installers, so they could avoid a 6 hour per day round trip from Birkenhead for their workforce

Really? Isn't the windfarm already half built though?

A look down a slightly snow covered Pier this afternoon. If you're wondering what the railings in the foreground are, they are there because the decking is unsafe and there is no money to fix it, so the whole area has had to be sealed off. As I understand it, there are no plans to carry out any maintenance work on the decking this year.  &shake&

No money to fix it! How long can that go on for?
