Opportunity area briefing: East Kent

The next instalment in our series of popular Opportunity area briefing events will focus on what’s happening in East Kent, including the revival of coastal towns, new transport links and new settlements. At this showcase and networking event we will hear about the developments that will transform East Kent over the coming years.

This half-day event will be a showcase for major developments in Dover, Folkestone, Canterbury and Thanet. You will hear from developers and designers working on major projects while speakers from local authorities and other public bodies will fill in the strategic background. There will be plenty of time for discussion and networking with the key people who are shaping East Kent.
