Spent Wednesday night in the Best Western hotel on Marine Parade, Dover. Usual collection of motorhomes enjoying the free overnight (17.30 to 08.30) parking.

 

Was amazed to see the mega construction project that has now started in the Western Docks area at the end of Marine Parade.Apparently this is Dover Western Docks Revival project and it's big stuff 8-)

Like the Calais Conference Centre development I think this huge development will spell the end of free overnight parking on Marine Parade. The video shows complete change from just after the Best Western Hotel and before the seafood restaurant/water sports centre.

 

In addition the inland side of the A20 dual carraigeway is also being redeveloped through a £24m contract by developer, Bond City, to deliver the £53m St James development in Dover town centre. The contract includes the construction of a six-screen cinema, hotel, restaurants, and shops. This forms part of the comprehensive redevelopment of the St James area to create 156,915 sq.ft of prime retail and leisure space in the high-profile location close to Europe’s busiest passenger port.

Great (and not before time) improvements to Dover with direct impact on free overnight motorhome parking.
