Dover port plans ‘moving forward’ with developer appointment
The Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) project, which is set to safeguard the port’s future and work alongside ongoing regeneration projects in the town, has appointed Bride Hall as developer.
Bride Hall is now exploring development opportunities, which could include shops, hotels and bars.
The port has delivered a record year with over 2.4 million freight vehicles handling an estimated £100bn of goods.
Dover Council said the plans could make “a once-in-several-generations difference” to the community.
The port also wants to build a new £120m cargo terminal at the site creating 600 jobs.
Dover District Council chief executive Nadeem Aziz said: “This is an exciting announcement for Dover.
“We will be working with the port’s new waterfront regeneration arm and Bride Hall to ensure all of our plans for the regeneration of Dover are coherent, joined up and offer the best opportunity to make a once-in-several-generations difference to our community and Dover as a thriving destination.”
