Dover Town Investment Zone-Planning Applications Submitted

Following the recent signing of legal agreements, planning applications have been submitted today (Monday 28 November) by Bond City for the major multi million pound redevelopment of the St James’ area of Dover.

The applications have been submitted by the Council’s development partners Bond City following recent consultation with the public. The proposals would provide a total of 120,000 sq ft of retail floor space within the area known as the Dover Town Investment Zone (DTIZ), and a new hotel and restaurants on the corner of Woolcomber Street and Townwall Street. These replace previous plans for a scheme anchored by an Asda superstore with new plans for a range of mostly smaller shops, restaurants and a 100 bed hotel around a central square of landscaped parking, with 445 parking spaces.

Cllr Paul Watkins, Leader of Dover District Council said: “Following the recent signing of the Development Agreements, we welcome the early submission of these planning applications. They will of course be considered through the Council’s normal planning procedures. This is another very significant step forward for this major redevelopment.”
