The site lies 2km (1.2 miles) east of Canterbury city centre, south of Littlebourne Road. It is the western part of the St Martin’s Hospital complex which originally opened in the early 1900s. The eastern part of the Hospital complex is still in use as a hospital.
The site is within the St Martin’s Hospital Conservation Area, although none of the buildings are listed. The Conservation Area was designated in 1990, the main characteristics of which are the setting of the buildings in the landscape and the character of the buildings. The buildings face the parkland to the south and have a strong relationship with the parkland. There are a number of important trees within the site.

We propose to redevelop the site whilst respecting its location in a Conservation Area. This includes retaining some of the existing buildings and then also developing new homes in a landscape setting that is well connected to the surrounding community and facilities.
