Developers Bouygues have unveiled plans for a major regeneration project in Canterbury.
The 10-acre site at Kingsmead will see shops, bars, restaurants, homes and a multiplex cinema built around a new public square. Construction is due to begin in late 2016 on the site of the old coach park and Serco depot.
Fifteen developers submitted proposals to Canterbury City council, who drew up a shortlist of three before Bouygues was selected to take the scheme forward.
Canterbury City Council chief executive, Colin Carmichael, said: “Bouygues Development has an excellent track record of developing large-scale, complex mixed-use regeneration projects such as the one we envisage for Kingsmead.
“Ultimately it was the quality of the design and their ability to deliver this project that gave Bouygues Development the edge.”
Axel Boutrolle, regional director at Bouygues, said: “After eight months of hard work, we are confident that we have designed a viable scheme which keeps to the council’s project scope and respects the surrounding area.”
