The redevelopment of Chatham Docks will enable a 26 acre (10.5 hectare) waterfront site to be developed close to the centre of town.
The regeneration of the site will help to tackle unemployment in the area and align with the policy objectives for Medway Unitary Authority and the wider Thames Gateway region.
The masterplan demonstrates how a range of uses can be accommodated. The uses proposed are employment focused, yet draw upon the need for new conference and event space and university departments as well as residential units. In addition, commercial and leisure development is proposed as well as a hotel and retail use which will include a foodstore.
