UK: Dover Port Development Plans Widely Welcomed

Proposals from Dover Harbour Board to develop a new multi-million pound cargo terminal have been widely welcomed by local residents and businesses in the town, signing up to the shared vision.

Derek Leach, Chairman of the Port and Community Forum, and Dover Society, said: “The Board’s plans were warmly received by the Port and Community Forum with the possibility of several hundred new jobs, a boost to the local economy and the regeneration of the Western Docks area. The Board is also looking for the support of the community in delivering the project, which I am sure we shall do in any way possible.”

Adeline Reidy, speaking on behalf of The White Cliffs Dover Hotel & Guest House Group, said: “The dynamic team led by Tim Waggott and new members of the Dover Harbour Board have given Dover a second opportunity to rejuvenate the Western Port, securing future jobs and very welcomed engagement with the local community. The master plan and vision will come with key benefits to business and the district. We congratulate the Board and encourage the people of Dover to support this fantastic initiative.”

A further 140 jobs will be safeguarded by the development of a new cargo terminal, relocating the existing operations from Eastern Docks. The expansion of activity at the Western Docks will enable the Port to accommodate increased ferry passenger capacity at new berths in the Eastern Docks.
