Resurfacing of Middle Street Car Park

The surface of the Middle Street Car Park is nearly 25 years old and because of the heavy usage requires completely resurfacing. In conjunction with this, Kent County Council will be resurfacing the A258 Broad Street and Queen Street. It is hoped by coinciding both schemes, it will minimise the disruption and inconvenience to residents and businesses.The 3-week works planned for the car park started on Monday 18 February 2019, and the 3-day closure is set to start Tuesday 26 February 2019 and to be completed by the end of Thursday 28 February 2019. Signing will be provided at the entrance to the car park with dates of the restricted access and closures.

Unfortunately due to the extent of the works there will be some disruption to users of the car park over the 3-week contract period. Please click the links below to view plans showing the works broken down in to 3 distinct phases. We plan to keep half of the car park open for Phases 1 and 3, but will need to close the entire car park for Phase 2 when the entrance/exit road is being resurfaced. This phase is the most critical stage, which we envisage will take 3 days.

Dover District Council appreciates that the businesses abutting this car park will require access for deliveries and refuse collections. To assist us in coordinating the works, can you please use the attached form to let me know what days/times you have deliveries and refuse collections that require access through the car park. Please use the same form to detail if you have any private parking areas that are accessed through the car park. We will offer temporary parking in Middle Street Car Park and/or others in Deal for private parking spaces that cannot be accessed during the works. Please return the forms to me by 12noon of Friday 8th February 2019 which can be scanned and emailed, or alternatively posted, to the addresses detailed above.


  • Phase 1 - commencement of works starting 18th February (partial closure) 
  • Phase 2 - full car park closure 25th, 26th, 27th February
  • Phase 3 - car park partially reopens 1st March (partial closure)
