Out in the harbour, the marina curve appears to have been completed and now all its lampposts have gained light holders. Beyond it work is now being undertaken to construct a pier. Just below the sports centre, the shingle is being cleared from the piles of the new marina pier so that ‘anodes’ can be fitted to fitted to reduce corrosion of the piles with the shingle being temporarily stockpiled to the east of the Watersports Centre. The temporary rock barrier is also being removed. The beach will be restored to its previous profile when the work is completed, aided by the natural build-up of shingle.

This TR3140 : View from the Dover Sea Sports Centre was taken a week ago.

Planning permission was granted by Dover District Council under application number DOV/15/01254 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.

Further images of the marina curve (also known as promenade pier) may be viewed on LinkExternal link while the pier beyond it is referred to as a pierhead on the website. Search for “beach shingle” for the text referring to the work that is being carried out. See also TR3240 : View from the Dover Sea Sports Centre.
