Dog house sandgate

A new furniture shop has been proposed to open in Sandgate, Kent, next month.

David Watson, owner of David Creates Ltd, has applied for planning permission at Shepway District Council to open a brand new independent furniture store – named The Dog House, as well as offering workshops and a café.

The proposals suggest that the new store, which would take over from a former osteopath clinic on Sandgate High Street, would retail furniture products, whilst offering upcycling workshops for customers to paint their own pieces.

Within the proposals, the company states that a new The Dog House website would be launched alongside the store, with the designs currently under construction.

The business revealed it plans to be in the property by October to refit the showroom ready for an official launch in November in time for Christmas trade.

The application was validated last month with the consultation period expected to expire on 14 October 2016. A final decision date is yet to be confirmed.
