Out in the harbour, the upright piles will eventually be integrated into a marina curve, for which planning permission was granted by Dover District Council under application number DOV/15/01254. This was for the “reduction of ramps to either end of sheet pile section and construction of cargo berths and marina curve, to be attached to masonry section”. The ramps, which the planning application refers to, formed part of the Prince of Wales Pier.

To the right of the piles is the dredger Sospan-Dau and to her right a hopper barge, which could be either Wadden 1 or 4, both of which are probably being used in the Dover Western Docks Revival Scheme. Half-hidden, by a great mound of shingly-sand on the Prince of Wales Pier, is the cruise ship Black Watch, which will be moored beside the Admiralty Pier TR3240.
