So what’s the idea behind


Most Dover residents recognise the need to resurrect our high street. The move to online shopping and the challenges of high rents and business rates make starting a high street business feel like a big risk. Dover Big Local have been given temporary use of the former

Co-op building in Stembrook for a period of at least 2 years by its owners Dover District Council. This gives DBL an opportunity to follow up on the Pop-up Business training offered last year by offering business incubator units in which people wishing to try out a business idea can do so at low risk in terms of set up costs. Floor space, heat, light and internet are all included in a low per-metre space rental and users have the flexibility to design the space they need within their area. All kinds of businesses from coders to creatives are welcome.

Meetings rooms and space for training will also be offered.
