MORE than 300 new jobs will be created following the announcement of two developments at the port of Sheerness.
Up to 160 will be created by the construction of a pre-delivery inspection centre for imported Peugeot Citroen cars before they are dispatched to British showrooms.
The £2m centre will prepare 200,000 new cars a year from France, Spain and Italy for Gefco UK, the distribution arm of Peugeot Citroen.
Another 150 jobs are expected to come from the development of a £1.5m fruit-packing plant alongside the fresh produce terminal on the quayside at Sheerness docks.
