The residents of Dover have voted overwhelmingly in favour of a plan to try to buy the town’s port.

In a referendum organised by the Dover People’s Port Trust, 5,244 people voted in favour, with 113 against.

The result, which is non-binding on the government, was a reaction to Dover Harbour Board’s privatisation plans.

Dover MP Charlie Elphicke said: “I hope this will give strength to the campaign to ensure the port of Dover is owned by the people of Dover.”

‘Best option’

Mr Elphicke, a Conservative, said he would now be making “a strong case” to the secretary of state for transport that residents’ “voices should be listened to and we should have the port owned by the Dover community as a landmark project”.
