Innovation Park Medway masterplan
Medway Council and Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council will be consulting on a draft masterplan for Innovation Park Medway.
This is an important opportunity to help shape the economic future of the region and has been a long term ambition.
The Innovation Park Medway masterplan reviews and refreshes the 2014 Rochester Airport masterplan.
The plan's ambition
The main aims are to:
- strengthen the performance of the local economy
- create jobs to secure growth and prosperity
- realise the area’s potential whilst ensuring the long term operating future of Rochester Airport
The document will also provide a vision and guidance for the consideration of development proposals and, once adopted, will be a Supplementary Planning Document, providing guidance to potential developers.
The masterplan itself is not a planning application but it is expected that future development will follow the guidance in the masterplan.
Tell us what you think
We want to hear your comments on the design principles in the draft masterplan. Your views will shape these principles and the future regeneration of the wider Rochester Airport site.
After public consultation your comments will be fed back into refining the draft masterplan where considered appropriate.
The revised masterplan will then be submitted to Medway Council’s Cabinet for formal adoption as a Supplementary Planning Document, which will influence future development of Innovation Park Medway.
Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council will also be adopting the masterplan for the purposes of economic development subject to formal approval.
