The 'Welcome to Dover' sign is being torn down and the Crypt is being cleared up!
This is fantastic news. Dover District Council deserve huge credit for listening to the community's concerns and taking action.
I met with met with local fish and chip shop owner Silvio Macari and White Cliffs Country Tourism Association chairman Graham Hutchison in the area last month.
They agreed that the 'Welcome to Dover' sign, put up by the Labour mayor four years ago, has become an embarrassment to the town. This horrible hoarding simply has to go.
Meanwhile, the former Crypt site has been left to ruin for decades – so the council's promised comprehensive clean-up will be welcomed by the community and local businesses.
This is yet another significant step towards making Dover town centre the best it can be.
