William Muge and Snelgrove Residential Development, Dover
Client: Dover District Council
The mixed-tenure development will offer homes for affordable rent, shared ownership and private sale and the scheme, which enjoys views of Dover Castle, is one of the most ambitious housing project the Council has undertaken in many years, underlining their commitment to directly deliver new, modern and affordable homes for local people.
Designed by award-winning Avanti Architects, the development is split across two separate sites on Harold Street in Dover and will greatly boost essential housing provision with the new homes. The William Muge site will provide 29 apartments, all a mix of 1 and two bedrooms and 3 townhouses whilst the Snelgrove site provides 9 townhouses to the rear of the site and 24 apartments at the front.
Formerly a redundant brownfield site the development will vastly improve the public realm for the benefit of the wider neighbourhood and is progressing well with completion and occupation of the new homes anticipated for Spring 2021.
Excellent relations continue to be nurtured with our client team through a highly collaborative and partnering approach to delivery:
“The Dover District Council client team would also like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude and thank you for working with us to realize our vision of creating aspirational homes that will be of benefit to the whole community. We are truly convinced that when finished this development will play its part in changing people’s perception and demonstrating that Dover is ‘Open for business’.” Rob Page – Strategic Development Lead (Architecture)
