The council's plan for Medway
Medway is made up of the towns of
Strood, Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham and Rainham and more rural
areas, including the Hoo Peninsula.
Situated in Kent in the south-east of
England, the area has plenty of green spaces, excellent facilities
and easy access to the national motorway and rail networks.
Medway Council is a unitary authority,
providing all local government services for a quarter of a million
It looks after education, environment, social care, housing, planning, business and much more - everything from frontline
services such as rubbish collection and events like the Dickens
Festival to work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure services
in Medway run smoothly and cost effectively.
