Have your say on the Port

Today the Transport Secretary Philip Hammond announced the reopening of the consultation in to the Port of Dover.

The proposed privatisation of Dover is now conditional on "community involvement", something the Peoples' Port proposal has long campaigned for. "This is a very big step forward and I welcome it" says Charlie. "It shows the impact that local people have had on the debate."

Those supporting or interested in the People's Port can now write to the Secretary of State, Philip Hammond asking him to seriously consider the People's Port proposal and keep the Gateway to the Nation, forever England.

To put your views in to the consultation, write to:
