Folkestone & Hythe District Council is experiencing a period of rapid environmental, social and economic change with a vision to see the district flourish into a distinctive area of high-quality towns.


Regeneration of Folkestone, and ambitious plans for a new garden town at Otterpool Park are underway. At the same time, it will be essential to protect countryside and heritage assets. The District Council is addressing the implications of change through a place-shaping approach. The aim is to draw from the district's own characteristics and unique potential, to achieve high quality new developments.

The Folkestone & Hythe Place Panel is chaired by Joanne Cave, partner at David Lock Associates.
