The Hastings Pier & White Rock Trust applied for funding to the Heritage Lottery and were awarded a £11.4 million grant to restore the substructure of the Pier and renovate the remaining building. In August 2013, a Compulsory Purchase Order was enacted and the Pier was returned to local ownership, which enabled the £14m renovation project to go forward. Work was completed in late 2016 and the Pier re-opened in May 2016.
