Investment

Canterbury City Council is committed to supporting the development of the district’s economy.  As well as supporting the growth of local businesses the Business and Regeneration Service also leads on investment related work.  This is diverse in nature but includes undertaking strategic work to ensure the district is well positioned and equipped to attract new investment.

Business and Regeneration also works directly with investors and their representatives. This entails promoting the district to potential investors, developers and agents where this leads to increased economic activity and job creation.

Whether you are starting a new business in the district, expanding an existing business or considering moving your business to the area, we can help you find the site that accommodates your future growth and expansion plans, and reflects your corporate image.

Canterbury also works with partner organisations such as Locate in Kent to attract investment into the area both from other parts of the UK and abroad.
