Millions of pounds are being invested in Chatham to regenerate the town centre through a number of projects.

Thanks to funding secured through the Future High Streets Fund, we’re refurbishing St John’s Church, working in partnership with the Church of England Diocese of Rochester.

The Grade II listed church, situated on Railway Street in the heart of Chatham, will be restored as a place of worship.

This exciting refurbishment will also include redeveloped community area to provide conference and event spaces for the creative and digital sectors.

We’re giving residents a chance to have a first look at these plans at a special community event.
