The council adopted a planning brief to guide development
of the Gillingham Waterfront site in July 2004 for this 10 hectare
(20 acre) site with the potential to deliver a mix of commercial
and residential development in a key location close to the Medway
Tunnel on the northern bypass.
The area includes the former Akzo Nobel site and Gillingham Pier
and stretches from Chatham Dockyard east to Danes Hill. It
incorporates both public and private water-based leisure
facilities, vacant former industrial sites, housing and commercial
uses. It is close to the densely populated North Gillingham area
and lies between the river and the Gillingham North Relief Road
The waterfront area provides an opportunity for mixed-use
developments, marine activities and increased public access to the
river. It can also play a role in improving the environment,
significantly, raising the quality of development and contributing
to the provision of community services in the area. An approved
development brief (pdf 3,080KB) covers the
area between Chatham Dock and Gillingham Marina.
