Knocking down Burlington House is one of my key priorities. It's demolition will fire the starting gun for the renewal of Dover town centre. Since I was elected in 2010, I have worked tirelessly with the Council and the Government to get the go ahead for the demolition.
The Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) for Burlington House has now been confirmed by the government. This is fantastic news and truly is a day of days in the history of Dover. We have waited for 10 years for this. It's incredible to get this result and it's a defining moment in the work of delivering a great future for our town. It's an important milestone on the way to making Dover once again a jewel in the crown of our nation.
I look forward to the bulldozers moving in soon.
