Entry is free and there is no limit on the
number of nominations a business or resident can make. All
nominations will be carefully considered and shortlisted, before an
independent panel of judges selects an overall
winner for each category.
The shortlisted businesses and developers will be invited to
attend an awards ceremony being held at The Historic Dockyard
Chatham on Friday, 16 June.

There will also be a people's choice award. Members of the
public will decide which of the nominated finalists will win the
popular vote. Details of the finalists for this award and how to

'Great opportunity for businesses and developers'
Leader of Medway Council, Cllr Alan Jarrett, said: “The Medway
Design and Regeneration Awards is a great opportunity for all
businesses and developers that have been part of the regeneration
of Medway. It takes a great amount of time for developers to
finesse building plans and we’re pleased to be able to hold an
awards ceremony that recognises their hard work.
“This is an exciting year for Medway; not only is it the first
time we are holding the awards, but we are also hosting a series of
events throughout the year which are due to attract tourists and
developers from across the nation. Medway really is a place we can
all be proud of.”
