Medway on the Map programme
One of the priorities in our Council Plan is for Medway to be on the map. This programme is developed around our culture, tourism and regeneration strategies, including Medway 2035 and Creative Medway.
By building on what makes Medway unique - the river, our heritage, our creativity and sporting legacy - Medway on the Map promotes our area as a great place to live, work, learn and visit.
