Creative Centre & Underpass

Enhancing Dover’s cultural and creative offer and better connecting the high street and waterfront lie at the heart of a successful £3.2m bid by Dover District Council (DDC) to the Government’s Future High Streets Fund

Together with a £1.7m commitment from DDC’s Town Centre Regeneration Fund, the £4.9m plans will deliver key projects designed to increase footfall and local spending on the high street. 

The plans complement existing projects to rejuvenate Dover town centre, including the £10.5m Lottery funded restoration of the Grade I Listed Maison Dieu and a £3.6m Coastal Community Fund project to reinvent the Market Square
