Funding

Plans for the Memorial are being developed using LIBOR funding which is awarded by Central Government to promote activities to support and honour armed forces veterans.

 

Dover District Council is facilitating the planning stage of the project and intends to attract an independent trust to deliver and manage the Memorial during construction and operation.
