Reversing the decline - plans to convert an historic harbour arm into a new 'pier' for Kent near completion

Multi-million pound plans to redevelop Folkestone harbour are underway, with work on the first major stage due to be finished by early summer. It's hoped this part of the project, which will see the harbour arm opened as a public promenade for the first time in one hundred years, will drive forward regeneration. But when will the other major redevelopments the town has been promised begin? Sarah Saunders spoke to site manager Rick Fretwell, engineering consultant Ben Boyce; and Peter Bettley of the Folkestone Harbour Company.
