Town centre draft masterplans consultation

The future of our town centres is a major concern and is an important area of work for the new Local Plan. We're preparing policies for the town centres and high streets across Medway, and leading on regeneration and investment programmes. We commissioned work on town centre masterplans and delivery strategies to support both local plan work and regeneration.

Plans have been drawn up for Strood, Chatham and Gillingham. We have chosen these towns for this work because of the potential redevelopment opportunities that they offer.

We consulted on the draft documents from 16 August to 30 September 2019. We have reviewed the comments and took these and other relevant information into account in reviewing the masterplans and preparing a final version of the documents. 

We will present the final copies of the plans to Cabinet on 17 December 2019 to seek approval of the documents, as part of the evidence base of the new Local Plan.

You can view the documents on our Local Plan evidence base webpage
