Ground-breaking at Dover Port

It was a real pleasure to be at the groundbreaking of the Western Docks Revival. I was joined by the Chairman of Dover Harbour Board, George Jenkins, and Chief Executive, Tim Waggott, to start the demolition of the old Seacat berth at the old hoverport. It was the start of the regeneration of Dover Port. When the project is finished, there will be a new cargo terminal and new development on the waterfront.

It's great to see the commitment of the port to new investment and the creation of hundreds of new local jobs. There's a real sense of change and partnership with the town. New investment, new community directors and a new fund for Dover too. A partnership that can strengthen Port of Dover's position as one of the UK's leading ports and enhance its position as the leading ferry port in Europe.
