South East

Folkestone is a coastal town of national strategic importance with undoubted potential. Its location on the south Kent coast places the town in an enviable position, with unparalleled scenery and outstanding transport infrastructure which links it to the rest of the UK and to Europe.

Folkestone’s Coastal Community team is led by Folkestone Town Council’s Town Clerk and comprises representatives from all three tiers of local authority, local businesses, charitable trusts and other sectors of the community.  The Team is working together to create the positive economic conditions that will ensure the self-sustaining renaissance of Folkestone; by providing quality jobs, homes and leisure opportunities for all.
