Princes Parade

Plans for a new seaside development, including a swimming pool and leisure facilities, were drawn up by Folkestone & Hythe District Council.

The majority of councillors elected in 2023 do not support the scheme and are currently considering options on the future use and treatment of the site.

Leader Cllr Jim Martin has committed to “proper conversations” with the local community about “restoring the biodiversity and future of this much-loved community asset.”

Hoardings remain in place and are being maintained to ensure ongoing site security and public safety from the contaminated land until the council has clarity on works required to be able to take them down.

No further activities on the site are currently being progressed. Please read our Princes Parade timeline for a full lowdown on the site’s history.
