A consultation on providing a giant war memorial for Commonwealth servicemen begins today.
The names of the 1.7 million soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in both world wars would be inscribed on 12 white granite walls facing the sea at Dover Western Heights.
The public consultation continues until Sunday, December 10.
The Western Heights have seen more than 200 years of continuous military development from the Napoleonic era to the early 1960s.
The site identified for the memorial was originally the location of barrack buildings built for the town’s Napoleonic defences.
The terracing provides views of the English Channel and France.
Dover District Council intends to help an early development of the project, which is likely to be delivered and managed by an independent charity.
Development of the proposals and initial design work has been funded by the government’s Libor Fund, which promotes activities to support and honour veterans.
The public can look at the plans online and share their views by completing a questionnaire.
There will be two public events at Dover Library in Market Square on Wednesday, November 22, from 2pm to 7pm, and Saturday, November 25 from 10am to 3pm.
People can view the proposals, talk to the team involved and provide feedback.
The questionnaire can be found on the council's website here.
