We seek to create an excellent environment for businesses to start up, thrive and relocate to. With the UK economy improving, Canterbury’s business community is flourishing and we want to continue building on this.

Our Business and Regeneration team initiate and lead on the largest and most important economic regeneration and urban renewal projects in the district. Our work includes:

  • Managing specific projects that enhance the built environment in our towns and city.  Examples include the Canterbury Riverside project at Kingsmead and the refurbishment of Herne Bay’s clock tower.
  • Acting as internal advocate for commercial development or proposals that result in new business accommodation, and working with Planning to ensure their smooth progress through the planning system.
  • Working alongside developers and their agents to ensure affordable housing and commercial development projects are delivered to the market in a timely way and have the best possible chance of succeeding.
