Council and democracy
Medway Council is a unitary council responsible for providing
services, including education and social services, in Rochester,
Strood, Chatham, Gillingham, Rainham, the nearby rural areas and
the Hoo Peninsula. The council also ensures that people comply with
regulations, supports business and tourism in Medway and works
to regenerate the area.
Councillors make decisions
about everything from refuse collection to regeneration of the
area. It is their job to ensure that services are provided cost
effectively, where they are needed and without discrimination. Find your councillor.
Council meetings are publicised in advance and members of the
public are welcome to attend.
The council is currently a Conservative
led administration. Medway's Conservative group hold
35 seats followed by Labour with 17 and the Liberal
