The university campus buildings at Broadstairs are to be sold

The freehold for the campus is to be sold

The Canterbury Christ Church University campus buildings in Broadstairs are to be sold.

The buildings are listed with Savills for freehold sale of the student accommodation block at Northwood Court and the Allen and Carey buildings on campus.

The lots could be sold separately or as a whole.

The campus stopped taking in students from last month as the university relocates courses to Canterbury as part of its 10 to 15-year Estate Master Plan in which it is investing £150million in new buildings and facilities in the city.

The Broadstairs campus was created in 2000 to provide access to higher education for local people.

But university bosses say the majority of students from Thanet chose to study at the Canterbury site instead of Broadstairs.

In June this year Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group confirmed that the campus was one of the potential sites being looked at for a ‘super surgery’ similar to the Bethesda surgery proposal.

The Savills listing says the site will be sold by private treaty with a guide price provided on application. Bids need to be submitted, with financial proof, to the agents.

Lot 1, the Allen and Carey buildings, are currently arranged as a mix of office/education accommodation with a food hall and commercial kitchen.

Lot 2 in Northwood Court with 86 student rooms, parking and some gated communal courtyard and garden areas.

The agents add: “Carey and Allen would suit continued use as an educational facility or would be readily adaptable to office accommodation or possible medical facilities.”

The site has an overage provision of 50%. Overage provisions are negotiated into the contract of sale to ensure that once planning is obtained, the seller receives a proportion of the increase in the value of the land.

The provision expires in September 2020.

  1. this is such a shame..i did a couple of courses there when it first opened… these would make great rooms to hold adult education classes in as we really dont have much on offer in the thanet area..

  2. this would make a good super hub for the NHS instead of building a new one at westwood,has so much potential

  3. Shame it cannot be used to help the homeless. 86 dorms and kitchen.
    Use the office/rooms to help them train for a better future
