London architect Bennetts Associates and Brighton architect Lomax Cassidy & Edwards are to submit a rival bid to architect KSS and developer St Modwen's proposals for the restoration of Brighton's West Pier, part of which collapsed at the end of last year. The alternative rescue plan for the pier is supported by local action group Save Our Seafront, which aims to complement the architectural and historical significance of the pier with a specialist sea spa. Developer is Birch Restorations. The picture shows the Bennetts plan.
