Howe Barracks, Canterbury
We are well under way with preparing detailed plans 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 have received a planning consent from Canterbury City Council for Phase 1 of our development. This will include up to 171 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.Our planning application is available to view by visiting Canterbury City Council's online planning pages and searching reference number CA//17/00193.
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 2016 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 2016. The comments we received from local residents and stakeholders helped us to finalise the details of our scheme before we submitted our reserved matters planning application.
