Ambitious plans are being drawn up to build a £35million marine sciences centre on the derelict Trinity Pier at Millbay. It would contain labs for studying climate change and sea level rises and reinforce Plymouth as a major international player in marine research. It would contain labs for studying climate change and sea level rises and reinforce Plymouth as a major international player in marine research. It is hoped to create a 10,500 sqm, three-storey, partly open-plan, centre on the 150m long pier. It would mean demolishing the current warehouse.

This sounds like it could be an axciting development.

    Agreed, as a resident of West Hoe, I agree something does need to be done to Millbay Docks, especially that ancient warehouse on Trinity Pier. Hopefully this, along with the new retail section at the north end of the docks, will bring the area back to life and prove a much bigger welcome to Spanish and French visitors coming off the ferry.

    Also, some stair/ramp access to Millbay Docks from West Hoe Road would be nice, that'll probably be incorporated somewhere in the design.
