The aim of the Abbot’s Mill Project is to create an urban hub of sustainable and compassionate living. The arrowhead piece of land (further along the river to our own land) is integral to our overall project and we would like to manage the entire area as a nature reserve and community education project.

We recently resubmitted our proposal to Canterbury City Council and were requested to present our ideas to Canterbury Area Member Panel (CAMP) on the 20th of November. Councillors were broadly supportive of our proposal and we now have to take them to the Regeneration and Property Committee for a final decision.
