Brexit: Dover inland border checkpoint planned
on farmland




A new inland border control site for HGVs entering the UK via Dover is set for
development near the town.



The Department for Transport (DfT) has bought the farmland, beside the A2 at
Guston, as a place to carry out the extended checks needed due to Brexit.



The site will be used in addition to Manston and Ashford lorry parks, as a possible
base for HMRC and Defra.



Further planning consent is still required and nearby residents are to be consulted,
a DfT spokeswoman said.



"We understand concerns about resulting disruption, which is why we are working
with the relevant authorities and our principal designer to ensure the surrounding
roads are not negatively impacted by increased HGV movements," she added.



In a letter to residents, Guston Parish Council said it "is actively working to
prevent such a development" and is taking legal advice.



Tracey Creed, chairwoman of the council, wrote: "There has been no response to
requests for detailed proposals from the DfT and our MP Natalie Elphicke has
responded to residents' concerns with a generic letter setting out her support for
the proposal."



According to the DfT, the Dover White Cliffs checkpoint is required because
the port does not have the space needed for extended checks.



Under the plans it will have purpose-built structures to check animals, animal
products or high-risk foods



It is expected the site, which will have spaces for about 670 HGVs, will be able
to be expanded to conduct full border control checks from July 2021.
