Medway's train connectivity powers regeneration
Medway Council is looking to its high speed connectivity through HS1 enabling journey times of just an hour to the City of London and its housing regneration programme, to help attract both London workers to settle in the area and encourage significant firms to invest around its five towns.
House building is taking place on the brown field sites around the Rochester riverside and a brand new station is to be built to serve commuters. There are also moves to campaign for city status where the Medway towns can be linked.
Medway Council's Deputy Chief Executive, Richard Hicks, will be speaking at our next Future Cities Forum in May at City Hall. Richard supports the delivery of the Council’s placemaking agenda, seeking to establish Medway as a great place to live, to work, to learn and to visit.
