Concept master plan – staff presentation and exhibition on 5 and 6 July

Staff have another opportunity to find out more about the University’s concept master plan for the development of the Canterbury campus over the next 50 years with leading architects, Farrells.

An exhibition will run in the Grimond Foyer (Canterbury campus)  on Tuesday, 5 July, from 10.00-18.00 and Wednesday 6 July, from 09.00-17.00. There is no need to book, all are welcome.

On Tuesday 5 July, there will also be a presentation from the University’s Director of Estates, Peter Czarnomski in Grimond Lecture Theatre 3, from 12.00-13.00. You will need to book your place online.

The concept master plan, developed with leading architects Farrells, builds on principles outlined in the University’s original development plan from 1963. The concept master plan contains ideas on how best to develop our campus to meet the needs of the University, as well as deliver long-term benefits to our local communities, and improve our intellectual, physical, economic and cultural connections with the city of Canterbury.

We need your comments and feedback on these ideas and these will be used to help us develop this concept into the finished master plan.

The University is also consulting with local residents, alumni, the business community and councillors in order to get a view from the local community.

The concept plan in full, along with ways to send in your comments online, is also now available on the University webpages.
