Cultural facilities

ten pledges, five years, one community

By 2016 Canterbury will be recognised locally, nationally and internationally, as a place to experience world class culture and heritage.

In order to meet this aim, we would expect to see progress on the following measures during the next five years:

  • An increase in the proportion of people saying that they are satisfied with cultural activities
  • An increase in the individuals and organisations achieving regional/national recognition for excellence, leadership and cultural achievements
  • An increase in the average spend of visitors to the district

A new Local Plan for the district

A new Local Plan for the district has progressed significantly over 2012. The plan aims to create the right conditions to encourage new investment that will diversify and strengthen the local economy. The council will be formally consulting on this important plan in the Spring of 2013
