PLANNING WIN – Hearing Impairment Unit for Canterbury Academy

An opportunity to enhance the existing tired building, whilst providing additional, much needed teaching space and the provision of a specialist hearing impairment unit for the local area

We are delighted that planning consent has been granted by Canterbury City Council for a new Hearing Impairment Unit at the Canterbury Academy. The site is located in a prominent and highly visible location and the proposals provide an opportunity to enhance the existing tired building, whilst providing additional, much needed teaching space and the provision of a specialist hearing impairment unit for the local area.

The approved design includes a first floor extension, with a new circulation core linking from the floor below. The ground floor will remain as two classrooms, which will be modernised. The new first floor will include an office, store, disabled WC, and teaching pods – providing specialist additional teaching spaces for children with hearing impairments.

 

High quality design, details and finishes will ensure the extension meets the needs of the children and staff using it, while giving it a strong sense of place and helping to enhance the school’s frontage in a very exposed and visible area.

Work is expected to start on site imminently and is due to be completed in the autumn.
