Fort Burgoyne Community Engagement Underway
Sunday, 3rd February saw the start of community engagement activities at Fort Burgoyne in Dover.
The first phase of the proposed regeneration will see the creation of a dedicated arts provision at the West Wing Battery, developed in conjunction with Dover Arts Development (DAD) and Charles Holland Architects, which will draw on the ideas, skills and knowledge of the local community.
As part of the early engagement process, The Land Trust invited leaders of the walking group, Explorers, to visit the site for a preparatory walk of the West Wing Battery. Lee Evans Partnership Associate and conservation architect, James Wood, was on hand alongside Ranger Paul Sampson to share their knowledge about the site, alongside representatives from DAD, Charles Holland Architects, and Pioneering Places who provided further information about the forthcoming proposals and engagement strategy.
Further information from DAD and details of future planned walks of the site with Explorers can be found here:
As The Land Trust look at the future uses of Fort Burgoyne, and its integration and offers to the local and visiting community, further community engagement events will be instigated with the overall aim of creating an enduring asset to the community.
