Chatham is part of the regeneration project with the aim to transform the town into Medway's 'city centre'.

The Chatham Waterfront and Chatham Placemaking projects aim to complement one another and make a huge improvement to the city centre and river walk in the coming years.

Chatham's new fire station opens

“I am very pleased to announce the official opening of Chatham’s fire station. It gives us a base that is fit for purpose for modern day appliances and equipment, as well as being more energy efficient than the former station. I believe this is a very real demonstration of our commitment to provide a good level of emergency response for local people, providing an effective base for our firefighters to help keep local people safe for years to come.”
