Mountfield Park is about reappraising what can be achieved with land. It's about great housing, brilliantly designed public spaces, high quality transport connections, investment in business and infrastructure and supporting the growth of community.
Welcome to the website for Mountfield Park, where you will find up-to-date information about the proposed development at South Canterbury.
Following formal consultation on the planning application, we have made a number of resubmissions. The Council will be consulting on these until 23rd September.
The application includes plans for 4,000 homes, 70,000 sqm of employment floorspace, 2 primary schools, extensive areas of woodland and open space, a reserve site for the Kent & Canterbury Hospital, and a community hub to include health services, local shops and community facilities. It also includes proposals for a package of measures to promote sustainable travel including a new junction on the A2 near Bridge, an enlarged Park & Ride with 1,000 spaces, provision for fast bus travel to the city centre, and pedestrian and cycle connections. Full details of the first 140 homes are submitted, and the remainder of the application is in outline.
The planning application comprises a number of plans and documents, some of which are, by necessity, very technical. You may find it helpful to read this Guide to the South Canterbury Planning Application before you look at the application. The application can be found here.
Who has made the application?
Corinthian Land, the organisation promoting the development, bring together many years of development industry experience. We recognise that development on this scale requires a commitment to deliver the infrastructure to support everyday living. New development must be properly woven into the fabric of the existing city, and we must do all that we can to ensure development is well integrated.
That is why we are forming ambitious plans to deliver new schools, local shops, health facilities, bus and cycle routes and a new A2 junction alongside the new homes. Canterbury is recognised as a “regional hub”; with its Universities, thriving city centre, hospital and high speed rail connection to London, it is poised to play an ever increasing lead role within East Kent’s future. Mountfield Park is an important part of this future, providing homes and employment land to support economic growth.
