It has been another busy month in housing.

Housing week at the Pentagon

In October we held our first Housing Week at the Pentagon Shopping Centre in Chatham.

We organised a week-long event for World Homelessness Day where residents could learn more about how our housing teams and partner agencies work together to support Medway’s residents.

Community events

We also held a community event in Gillingham with our colleagues in Youth Services, Adult Education, Medway Taskforce and Medway Sport.

The event was well attended and it was great to see so many young people taking part in the activities.

Housing development at Petham Green

November will see the completion of our new development at Petham Green.

The six one bed bungalows will soon be ready to be let and will complement the existing council owned homes in the area.

The bungalows have been created with older residents and people with mobility problems in mind and will be for social rent.

This month you can also find out about:

  • drop in advice services
  • estate inspections
  • housing repairs and capital works programme

If we have your email address, we’ll let you know when new stories are available.
