Local press has reported that the former Homebase site in Dover is to be taken on by a variety retailer, having stood empty for nearly two years.

The Honeywood Parkway site in Whitfield closed in October 2017, shortly before then-owner Wesfarmers sold the entire business to Hilco Capital for £1.

TJ Morris Limited, which trades under the fascia of Home Bargains, has submitted a planning permission application to convert the use of the building and make changes to the front of the store and the car park.

The document states that the changes "will allow the Site to be occupied by national discount retailer Home Bargains resulting in a large, vacant retail unit being brought back into beneficial use."

A statement on behalf of TJ Morris on the application reads: "The works will allow the site to occupied by the national discount retailer, Home Bargains, resulting in a large, vacant retail unit being brought back into beneficial use."

"The site is proposed to be comprehensively refurbished providing a new shop front, recladding of the elevations, revised car parking and improved access and service yard arrangements.

"There will be a slight increase in floorspace [7 square metres] as a result of the proposal."
