Student Apartments Proposed for Canterbury
A multiplex cinema, seasonal ice rink, and student accomodation will be part of a major new development in Kingsmead in Canterbury, if plans are approved.
Bouugues Development have been selected to develop the land, which will also include a residential development, restaurants, indoor leisure outlets, and a public area that will host everything from markets, to theatre, to an ice rink at Christmas.
City councillors took the decision to select Bouygues Development at a full council meeting on Thursday 30 April, but an announcement has not been possible until now for legal reasons.
Originally seven developers were considered, which were further whittled down by the council based on their proposals to three, and finally to one.
The next phase of the project will see Bouygues Development working towards submitting a planning application at the start of 2016 with construction starting later that year.
