Dover Port Granted Additional Powers

Dover Port Granted Additional Powers

The Dover Harbour Board has confirmed that  the U.K.’s Marine Management Organisation approved the Port of Dover’s application for additional powers.

Dover Harbour Board submitted the Harbour Revision Order back in June 2014.

The order is dated October 9, 2014 and will come into force on November 5, 2014, after it has been laid before the U.K. Parliament by the Marine Management Organisation.

Commenting on the approval, Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said: “This empowering decision arrives just four months after the initial application was made. Such a swift approval, in record time, comes only days after we announced the biggest ever single investment in Dover, the £120 million Phase 1 of Dover Western Docks Revival.

This means we now have the necessary powers to progress the project, delivering over 600 new jobs for Dover and transforming the waterfront to be the catalyst for Dover’s wider regeneration.We look set to deliver a record traffic performance in 2014. 

 These are new and uncharted waters for us all, but I believe we are entering a period of time that will go down in the history books as the start of a golden age if we all continue to support each other and work together to deliver for Dover.”
