A catering kiosk and decked seating area with a sail cover could be built on the Weymouth Pleasure Pier.

The site was cleared in recent months with the demolition of a former café building with repairs also made to the pier structure.

A final decision on the application for the timber-clad kiosk will be made by a Dorset Council planning officer with public comments on the application open until August 3.

Weymouth Town Council is expected to discuss the application from Dorset Council at its planning committee on Tuesday July 16.

It is expected the kiosk will sell hot take-away food and hot and cold drinks.
