Dover Town Centre Regeneration Steams Ahead

BBP Regeneration advised Dover Council for the approval of RG Group to develop the St James retail and leisure regeneration scheme in Dover town centre on behalf of L&G. Maidstone-based Gallagher Group has been on site since December 2016 and will continue as a sub-contractor.

The £53.25m development forms part of Dover District Council’s wider regeneration of the town. The scheme comprises 157,000 sq ft of shops and leisure, anchored by Marks & Spencer and Next, with a six-screen Cineworld cinema, a 108-room Travelodge hotel and six restaurants.

The development is 80% pre-let and recent lettings at the scheme include Shoe Zone, Card Factory, Carphone Warehouse and Greggs. Completion of the development is scheduled for Q1 2018.
