The Citadel fortress could become quality housing

I visited the Western Heights and heard how the Citadel fortress could be transformed into quality housing.

The site was previously used as Dover Immigration Removal Centre until its closure at the end of 2015.

We need more housing in Dover and Deal if we are going build a better future for our community. In this project we have a real chance to preserve the historic character of one of Dover's great historic assets – and make use of it for the good of the town.

The development would follow a similar project at Connaught Barracks, where demolition work continues ahead of some 500 homes being built at the former army headquarters.
