Talk by Ptolemy Dean:  Building new communities in Canterbury

Talk by Ptolemy Dean:  Building new communities in Canterbury – what might the developers learn from Wye, Chilham and Chartham?

Open lecture: 7.30 pm on Tuesday 27 June at the Friends’ Meeting House

Over the next ten years thousands of new homes are going to be built in Canterbury.  Is it possible to create good new communities in these developments?  Do the villages of the area offer any lessons about how to design a place where people enjoy living?

These and other questions will be considered in a talk to be given by Ptolemy Dean, the President of the Canterbury Society.  Ptolemy Dean is a distinguished conservation architect, who specialises in historic preservation, as well as in designing new buildings that are in keeping with their historic or natural settings.  He is also Surveyor of the Fabric of Westminster Abbey and is well known for his appearances on two BBC television series, Restoration and The Perfect Village.
