The future of our town centres is a major concern and is an important area of work for the new localplan. The council is preparing policies for the town centres and High Streets across Medway, and leading on regeneration and investment programmes. It has commissioned work on town centre masterplans and delivery strategies to support both its local plan work and regeneration. Plans have been drawn up for Strood, Chatham and Gillingham. This document has been prepared for Chatham.

This document is published as a draft for consultation. There are a number of areas where updates are needed to take account of recent activities, and to consider other evidence and proposals, as well as minor corrections and clarifications. It is intended that the document sets out an ambitious, but achievable strategy for Chatham town centre, and to stimulate debate about its future.

The council welcomes comments on this draft document. It will take these comments and other relevant information into account in reviewing the concept masterplan and preparing a final version of the document.
