Port of Dover
LDA Design prepared a Design Framework for Dover Harbour Board that successfully guided redevelopment of the Western Docks in support of the Harbour Revision Order. We developed the tools to understand and communicate the development’s potential impact, along with the development planning and design solutions to address them.
Our approach played a key role in resolving opposition to the port’s construction to the point that the Secretary of State for Transport was able to grant permission without recourse to a Public Inquiry. This illustrates the value of robust assessment and high-quality collaborative visioning and design as tools for consensus building and securing consents.
