Shipping and Ports Minister Stephen Hammond has set out plans for the future of the Port of Dover.
The plans will enable the community and port to work together, boosting commercial development and potentially regenerating the port.
Stephen Hammond said:
Dover is a thriving port with a proud history and today I have set out changes to the port’s constitution and financial powers that will help it grow in the future, and put the community at the heart of decision-making at the port.
I believe these steps are what is needed to secure a shared and enduring future for the port. I now urge the town and the port to work together to deliver its full potential.
