Guy Hollaway wins planning for £46m Kent regeneration

  • Comment

Guy Hollaway Architects has won planning for the £46 million regeneration of Sittingbourne in Kent

The first phase of the scheme, led by developer Cathedral, has been given the go-ahead.

The project, which is spread across six town centre sites, will transform Sittingbourne town centre and includes 215 apartments, cultural buildings, community facilities, a new public square, a cinema, shops, and restaurants.

Richard Upton, chief executive of Cathedral Group, said: ‘We have worked really hard with Swale Borough Council to get to this stage, but finally we can now start work to give Sittingbourne the support it needs to build a really successful future. Rather than roads and roundabouts, we want local people and visitors to be confronted by leisure and entertainment as soon as they arrive in the town centre. This is an exciting opportunity to create a prosperous new future for Sittingbourne and the kind of challenge we relish.’

The initial feasibility study of the development was carried out by Studio Egret West in 2012.

Work on the site is set to begin in 2015.
