Dover

Coastal Team

DOVER lies in the far south east and is the closest coastal community to mainland Europe.

Historically, Dover was the ‘Lock and Key of England’ with an array of coastal fortifications and its iconic White Cliffs heritage coastline.  As the ‘Gateway to Europe’ trading links dominate the economy.  Dover is one of the busiest ports in Europe.

The Team aims to transform tourism by shifting the focus from transit to destination, capitalising on the 13 million passengers who pass through each year, and maximising High Speed rail links with London.

It aims to achieve this by restoring and reviving an exceptional range of heritage assets, alongside initiatives aimed at improving access to, connectivity between, and promotion of, key attractions.  The aim is to increase visitor numbers, length of stay and spend.

The Team will support initiatives to bolster high street performance and adapt to changes in shopping habits.  Our aim is to re-establish the high street as a leisure destination.

Improved public realm and way-marking will encourage visitors back to the high street.  This will include a new Heritage Quarter and improvements to the riverside walk along the River Dour flowing through the town.

Our plan creates opportunities for people to learn new skills, including the development of a national centre for heritage skills to support the restoration and revival of built heritage.
