Dover Harbour Board has agreed to move forward on the first substantial phase of work that aims to transform Dover Port through its ‘Dover Western Docks Revival’ project.
The investment would be the biggest single investment by the Board in Dover and its port.
Tenders are being requested for construction companies to get involved in one of the most exciting development opportunities in the region, according to a Port of Dover press release.
Chairman of Dover Harbour Board George Jenkins, OBE, said: “Today’s positive decision is a bold one that demonstrates the board’s commitment to deliver for Dover.”
Tim Waggott, CEO of the Port of Dover, added: “It represents a further investment of up to £120 million in Dover and the employment prospects of current and future generations of local people over the next few years.”
Waggott concluded: “The studies have been done and the conversations have been had with our customers, with our community and with our staff. Now it is time for action. Now it is time to deliver for Dover.”
