Plans for a block of flats on the Two Brewers car park site in Dartford town centre have been approved.
The block is the second application approved on this site in recent years and will include 14 flats.
The Two Brewers pub is a building with some gorgeous details such as glazed tiles, and Grade II listed though empty for some time. It faces Lowfield Street which saw a decade of decline as Tesco bought up buildings then failed to build. They eventually sold and new homes are now rising.
The new block is pretty standard except for a terrible ground floor which presents a completely blank frontage to the surrounding street.
New residents in the town centre could help revitalise a town centre hit hard by Bluewater’s opening. Dartford Council plans foresee 1,030 homes and 300 jobs alongside improving the public realm.
