Master plan consultation

Framework Masterplan - Step 2


We are currently developing a Framework Masterplan, which details the framework within which we will make decisions about the future evolution of our campus in the short-term (2018 to 2021) and medium-term (2021 to 2031). It covers the period defined in the Canterbury District Local Plan.

This stage takes into account the feedback received during the Step 1 Consultation and Concept Masterplan consultation. It is an important step in the creation of a finished Masterplan to be presented to Canterbury City Council for their endorsement. Consultation on the Framework Masterplan is taking place in October and November 2018, providing an opportunity for members of the public to feedback on the document before we submit it to the council.

The Masterplan document is not a planning application but a vision for the evolution of the campus. It provides a framework against which future planning applications will be assessed. When and if aspects of the plan are funded they will go through the usual planning process and members of the public will be involved in the usual way.

Framework Masterplan

We shared information about the emerging shape of the Framework Masterplan with stakeholders to provide an opportunity for discussion of our vision for the campus in advance of the launch of the latest round of public consultation. 34 representatives of residents groups, amenity groups, neighbouring schools and local councillors attended a presentation at the Canterbury campus on 13 September 2018.

The presentation that we shared with this group can be found below.

We have also shared below the information that we are sharing during our public consultation events, which outlines the proposals put forward in the Framework Masterplan. If you would like to give your views on these proposals, please fill in our feedback form.
