Following a Planning Committee on 13th December 2016, Canterbury City Council has resolved to grant planning permission, subject to conditions and a legal Section 106 Agreement. Work on the conditions and Section 106 is ongoing through discussions with the City and County Councils.
4,000 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes
70,000m² of employment and retail space
Dedicated cycle storage and cycle hire schemes
2 primary schools providing space for 960 pupils
The planning permission will pave the way for 4,000 new homes, 70,000 sqm of employment floorspace, 2 primary schools, extensive areas of woodland and open space, a reserve site for the Kent & Canterbury Hospital, and a community hub to include health services, local shops and community facilities.
It also includes proposals for a package of measures to promote sustainable travel including a new junction on the A2 near Bridge, an enlarged Park & Ride with 1,000 spaces, provision for fast bus travel to the city centre, and pedestrian and cycle connections.
Full details of the first 140 homes have been approved and our intention is to commence works during 2018.
