New Dover Castle centre approved

Local authorities have approved plans for a new visitor admissions building at Dover Castle.

The building, a proposal for which was submitted by English Heritage in September 2008, will replace the current temporary structure.

Work is due to begin on the new building in January and be completed by the summer.

The new building will be constructed on the same site as the present one, which is at the west end of the middle car park, just north of the Officers' New Barracks.

It will be almost twice the size of the existing structure and cost £560,000 to build.
