They would be built between the existing houses on Marine Crescent and the sea.

Detailed plans submitted to Folkestone and Hythe District Council, for an area known for now as plot C1, include a mix of one, two and three bedroom properties, new shingle gardens, a playground games and a café and a restaurant with a terrace enjoying a view of the sea.

If the development is approved, there will also be parking for 130 vehicles and 136 bicycles, as well as access to the beach promenade to connect the new homes to the catering destination at the Harbor Arm.

The planning app was produced by the Folkestone Harbor & Seafront Development Company, which is run by billionaire philanthropist Sir Roger De Haan.

Paulo Kingston-Correia, Port of Folkestone Managing Director, said: “The Harbor Arm has grown from strength to strength, and the new homes are at the heart of our efforts to bring back key elements of Folkestone’s coastal heritage and support the region for the benefit of city residents, visitors and the local economy.

“The once redundant and dilapidated harbor and ferry port, most of which was closed to the public, is thankfully a distant memory.

“Much has already been achieved through our investment in redevelopment of the Harbor Arm and boardwalk into a great place to spend time. The C1 lot will add to our efforts to create a vibrant neighborhood where people can live and enjoy of all that the port and our city has to offer.”

The new homes proposed for Lot C1 were designed by Acme Architects, an award-winning international firm with offices in London and Berlin.
