Having obtained listed building planning consent from Dover District Council, the position of the flagpole on the building was discussed at Deal town council’s monthly meeting on Monday.
Councillors decided from two options that the pole will be mounted at a 45 degree angle close to the left hand window above the Undercroft, rather than the middle window. The national flag will be visible from both ends of the High Street.
The previous flagpole was removed 12 years ago for safety reasons.
Cllr Jim Cronk said: “Let’s fly the flag and then look into putting it back on top as well.”
The council agreed and mayor Deryck Murray added: “I would like it to go through as soon as possible within rules. Basically, we want it out fast.”
The council has also agreed to buy a commonwealth flag and fly it for Commonwealth Day 2015 next March.
The costs of the purchase and installation of a suitable flagpole, together with modifications of the window, will be taken to the next Finance and General Purposes meeting on Tuesday, September 9.
