Public consultation 2012
We would like to remind you that the closing date for comments as part of the University’s public consultation on the Keynes III proposals was Friday 5 October 2012.
The University of Kent recently held a public exhibition to give people the chance to find out more about our revised proposals for new student accommodation and a conference centre at our Canterbury campus. Those attending could see the new plans, attend a presentation and meet the design team and, most importantly, to give feedback.
Over a hundred members of the local community attended the exhibition and the University is currently considering all feedback received on the new proposals. However, following comments received, it has taken the decision to move forward with the new student accommodation, known as Keynes III. It will now work towards the submission of a planning application in October for the 780-bed student residence adjacent to Keynes II. This will address the immediate shortfall of student accommodation and meet demand for good quality student accommodation in Canterbury.
The closing date for comments as part of the University’s public consultation on the Keynes III proposals was 5 October 2012.
It is University’s intention to submit the planning application to Canterbury City Council later this year after which point there will be further opportunity to submit comments on the application directly to the Council.
The University will continue to review its proposals for a new conference centre in the light of comments received during the public consultation and in continued discussion with Canterbury City Council and the local community.
