HTA Design will lead several heritage regeneration projects across Canterbury after winning the council’s Levelling Up Fund Competition in May.
The project includes the development of Story Gardens at Dane John and St May de Castro Gardens; Greyfriars Gardens and the Castle Grounds.
The regenerative plans will deliver restorative landscapes across the sites to address the biodiversity emergency, says James Lord, partner for landscape at HTA Design.
“We are looking forward to working with Canterbury City Council and our skilled team to deliver a restorative landscape that addresses the biodiversity emergency and preserves heritage for future generations, whilst celebrating Canterbury’s rich historic narratives.”
The project follows the city’s successful ‘Connected Canterbury: Unlocking the Tales of England’ bid for government funding, awarded in January, to help maintain the city’s historic architecture, and comes not long after HTA Designs announced its win for the restoration of Crystal Palace Park.
