Status Planning


Barretts have had a presence in Canterbury on this city centre site for 100 years. Currently being used as a Jaguar showroom, there are plans for this to be moved a new state of the art facility. This relocation gives an opportunity to redevelop the area to meet future needs and demands.

Plans include the extensive refurbishment of the existing building, as well as the creation of a new development at the rear of the site, to provide an intimate and attractive contribution to the street.

Our design consists of student accommodation on the first and second floor of the existing building, with the new build accommodation at the rear, the style of which reflecting the existing intimate grain of Canterbury City Centre.

There are also offices and retail spaces proposed at ground floor level to retain an interactive street frontage.
