A new pier will be provided as part of plans for a second ferry terminal at Dover’s Western Docks.
The loss of the Prince of Wales Pier and part of the beach were among concerns over Dover Harbour Board’s plans which were raised at a public meeting on Tuesday.
Port bosses gave assurances a new pier would be provided, the Admiralty Pier would be improved, and shingle could be brought in to form extra areas of beach.
District council chief executive Nadeem Aziz described the plans as a “once in a lifetime, or once in several centuries” opportunity for investment and regeneration.
