Government notified the Council in January 2023 that its Dovercourt Town Centre Improvement Corridor bid was unsuccessful for LUF, but on 15 March 2023 Government announced the bid was successful in a sister fund, ‘Capital Regeneration Projects’ (CRP). The funding from Government comprises:
Kingsway improvements: A major investment into the appearance of Dovercourt Town Centre to improve the visitor experience and support local businesses.
Learning and library project: The Adult Community Learning skills centre will return to Dovercourt town within a refurbished library, increasing the opportunities for residents to benefit from courses locally.
Homes in Dovercourt: Demolish an out-of-date multi-storey carpark at Milton Road and build nine new, well-built social homes.
A consultation is running on the initial designs for public realm improvements to Kingsway. The consultation runs until Tuesday, 16 January 2024.
To find out more and give your views visit the Essex Highways consultation page for the scheme.
Printed copies of the consultation survey and information will be available at Harwich Library. In addition, a drop-in consultation event is being held at Harwich Library on Tuesday, 12 December from 1-8pm.
