"The St James development will transform the retail and leisure offer in the heart of Dover and South Kent."

Installation has begun on the new flint town wall at the new St James development in Dover. Milbank produced 97 precast concrete walls ranging from 6 to 11 tonnes using 4 separate moulds which allowed two moulds for flint laying whilst the other two moulds were poured over a 10 week casting period at our precast concrete factory in Earls Colne, North Essex. Dover District Council visited our factory during the production period to check the flint arrangement met their needs and gave the best possible match to existing flint walls and buildings in the vicinity. The walls are currently being erected on site adjacent to a row of popular shops including Next, Trespass and Marks & Spencer.

The development is located on the A20, the main road leading to the Port of Dover. This makes it highly visible and accessible to visitors, tourists and those travelling to and from the port. The development comprises of 156,915 SqFt of new retail and leisure space.
