Middle Deal transport improvements
A new link road is planned between Albert Road to the east and Southwall Road to the west, forming a spine road for the new mixed-use development to the west of Albert Road, which was granted by Dover District Council in February 2017.
The development proposal will bring up to 142 residential units and unlock the potential of a brownfield site for new investment. In addition to the new homes, the development will create new jobs with the creation of new offices, retail and commercial space as well as a new innovation centre.
The link road will provide suitable vehicle access to the new development and will relieve the high density residential area of Middle Deal from commercial vehicle traffic.
These works are scheduled for delivery in 2018/19.
The transport scheme will cost £1.5 million. It will be funded by a contribution of £800,000 from the Local Growth Fund, provided as part of the Growth Deal to the South East Local Enterprise Partnership. An additional £700,000 has been committed by Quinn Estates to deliver this scheme.
The approval to progress the Middle Deal transport improvements was taken by Kent County Council on 9 April 2014.
The decision by the SELEP Accountability Board to grant Local Growth Funding for the Middle Deal transport improvements was made on the 12 February 2016.
