Criticism for gold painted domes on Victorian pier

On 1 August 2016, it was reported that the new owner of Eastbourne Pier had been ordered to halt work after giving the Grade 2 listed structure a 'vivid' new look.

ITV reported complaints about Sheikh Abid Gulzar's decision to install gold-painted domes on the Victorian pier without planning permission. Speaking to ITV News Meridian, Sheikh Abid Gulzar said the colour scheme 'worked well' and was popular with the public.
