Master plan consultation


Concept Masterplan

In 2016, we published our Concept Masterplan containing ideas on how best to develop the campus over the next 30-50 years.

A public consultation on that concept took place from July to September 2016 and involved residents, parish councils, amenity groups, university staff and Canterbury City Council. We learned a lot during the consultation and published the results in a Concept Masterplan: Consultation Statement in April 2017.

Step 1: Strategic Vision

We completed Step 1, the Strategic Spatial Vision stage, in early summer 2017 and carried out further public consultation in June and July 2017. Again, we learned a great deal from the comments and feedback that we received during that process, which was summarised in the Framework Masterplan Step 1: Consultation Statement published in November 2017.

Step 2: Framework Masterplan

Ahead of completing the final draft Framework Masterplan, we carried out public consultation on the emerging themes within it. This took place from September to November 2018, including events, public exhibitions and a leaflet drop. The feedback from this process is summarised in our Framework Masterplan Step 2: Consultation Statement, published in February 2019.

Draft Framework Masterplan

We published the final draft of our Framework Masterplan on 23 April 2019. There will now be a six-week period for further feedback before we publish a final version. Printed copies of the Framework Masterplan are available on request or at the following locations:

  • Templeman Library, University of Kent
  • The Beaney, Canterbury
  • Blean Village Hall
  • The Tyler's Kiln, Tyler Hill

Feedback can be provided via our contact form, by emailing or by contacting the Corporate Communications team directly on 01227 824009. All comments must be received by Monday 3 June to be considered ahead of the final publication.
