BREAKING: Dover Brexit Impact Document obtained by @SkyNewsPolitics shows plans for Lorry Park on the M20 for “many years”
Dover clearly EXTREMELY nervous about traffic mitigation measures not working “there does not appear to be a Plan B”
THREAD: The report is pretty excoriating about central government and the lack of clarity on Brexit “We are unaware how the government will be allocating funding”
“Potential new customs arrangements are a major concern” say Dover, the Port Health Authority who will have implement them
Local Government Association estimates at 10.5 billion euro post-Brexit funding gap
There could be an extra 300 million declarations a year at Dover that would cause gridlock all the way to Maidstone
A 360% increase in Customs check that “the Port of Dover does not have the capacity for inspecting”
Operation Brock: “A giant temporary lorry park holding around 2,000 lorries” on the M20 that “will be in force for some time” 🚚🚚🚙
BROCK stands for ‘Brexit Operations Across Kent’. Presumably they decided against BROAK
Hard Brexit will likely mean Border Inspection Posts at Dover and the Channel Tunnel. Impossible to obtain accurate figures on the scale of the take - and - “the current system in place is simple, limited and dependant largely on goodwill”
Here’s @faisalislam’s longread on the Dover Brexit Impact Report obtained by @SkyNews…
Response from @peoplesvote_uk & @RosieDuffield1
“No-one, least of all the people of the South East, voted for a Brexit that turns most of Kent into a giant lorry park for years to come.”
