I think the council could’ve done better with dealing with the persistent offenders. I went to a pier liaison group meeting last night and heard that there were very few complaints over the summer even though there were a lot of people using the pier. So it’s likely that the arrangement will be the same for next season where fishing is allowed full time and there is a part time guard/warden.
There’s a chance the pier may have a fishing platform added at some stage, dependant on cost. That idea has been around for a while but not much has been done about it yet.
