Howe Barracks, Canterbury
We are preparing proposals for a new residential development at the former Howe Barracks site off Littlebourne Road in Canterbury, after purchasing the land from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO – part of the Ministry of Defence) in April 2016.
Outline planning permission for 500 new homes with associated infrastructure on the site was approved by Canterbury City Council in December 2015, following three sets of public consultations hosted by the DIO in 2013 and 2014.
We are currently making detailed plans for Phase 1 of our development. This will include up to 165 high-quality homes – approximately 26% of which would be made available as affordable housing for local people in housing need – as well as the creation of a new public park and off-site highways improvements.
In order to allow local residents and stakeholders the opportunity to find out more about our emerging proposals for Phase 1, we held a public consultation event at Canterbury Golf Club, Scotland Hills, Littlebourne Road, Canterbury, CT1 1TW, on Wednesday 5th October between 3.30pm-7.30pm. Visitors were able talk to our project team and provide their feedback.

The public consultation period for this development closed on Wednesday 19th October. The comments we received from local residents and stakeholders will help us finalise the details of our scheme before we submit a reserved matters planning application for Phase 1 of our development in early 2017.
