BBC News – Residents vote in favour of Dover ‘People’s Port’

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.’

I like this idea. I hope it will be successful, too.
