Community welcomes Chatham Docks Industrial Estate redevelopment

Thousands of new jobs and new homes, safe and sustainable pedestrian and cycle connections and community spaces have been highlighted as vital for regenerating the area by Chatham residents and businesses alike.

Residents and business groups across the region have voiced their support for Peel L&P’s plans to regenerate Chatham Docks, describing them as progressive and essential for Chatham, if the town is going to survive and thrive.

Peel L&P has spoken to hundreds of people, since announcing its vision for the 90-acre site at the end of 2021, with overwhelmingly positive (77%) feedback for the proposals to redevelop the area and create 35 acres of new vibrant, green, open and community spaces.

The proposals also feature one million square foot of new employment floorspace – which will create in excess of 2,000 new jobs and 3,600 homes of different tenures including Affordable Homes, Family Homes, For Sale and Build to Rent Homes, Elderly Living, Student Accommodation – and much improved connectivity for neighbouring areas, creating a waterfront destination fit for the future.
