Spirit of Sittingbourne

On behalf of Cathedral and Essential Land our strategy for the regeneration of the Sittingbourne delivers a series of mixed-use development opportunities that introduce a clear hierarchy to the retail format and footprint of the town centre, leading from the fine grain high street, through medium format A1 and A3 uses associated with the cultural quarter civic quarter to the large format ”edge of centre” retail space proposed on the mill site and waste transfer site.

We create a new ”cultural quarter” in front of the station with an 8 screen cinema, flexible performance venue and 65 bedroom hotel that together with a multipurpose piece of public realm will breathe new life into the Forum shopping centre and anchor the lifestyle offer of Sittingbourne. In addition, we create a new ”civic quarter” south of the High Street to house a new civic hub, library, community rooms and more efficient, more effective council office space alongside a health centre and primary care trust with residential above.
