Travelodge hotel set for Dover has design altered to remove telecommunications mast

A telecommunications mast has been removed from the design of the proposed 108-bed Travelodge hotel in Dover.

Revised plans have been submitted to Dover District Council for approval.

It is set to be built in the south east corner of the Townwall Street site and it will be a prominent focal point of the St James' scheme.

It will also include a bar and restaurant.

Travelodge signed up in February 2015 for the 120,000 sq ft St James’s development in Dover town centre.

It has so far attracted Cineworld, M&S Simply Food, Frankie & Benny's and Bella Italia.

The district council has said that negotiations with retail and restaurant tenants are ongoing and further announcements will be made soon.

A 16-week archaeological dig by the Canterbury Archaeological Trust is underway at the Woolcomber Street site with opportunities for people to view the excavations.

Tim Ingleton, head of inward investment at DDC, said: “There is no longer any need for a telecommunications mast as part of the hotel development.

"The operators of the few remaining antennas on Burlington House have found alternative locations.”
