Additional documents:




This report sought publication of the updated set of Regeneration Strategy documentation. This included the Medway 2037 strategy document, the Town Centre Strategy, the Innovation Strategy and the Skills and Employability Plan. The report also advised that work had commenced on a River Strategy and that this was due to be completed by the end of the financial year 2022/23.


The report explained that the refreshed set of strategies responded to key societal, socio-economic, and political agendas which were material to Medway’s growth agenda including Climate Change, Levelling Up and technological challenges and opportunities, whilst also ensuring that the Council would be able to capitalise on existing and emerging funding opportunities.








The Cabinet approved the publication of Medway 2037, the Town Centre Strategy, the Innovation Strategy and the Skills and Employability Plan.



The Cabinet agreed to delegate authority to the Director of Place and Deputy Chief Executive to, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Inward Investment, Strategic Regeneration and Partnerships and the Portfolio Holder for Planning, Economic Growth and Regulation, finalise the presentation of Medway 2037 and associated Plans and Strategies and to finalise wording of the Medway 2037 Foreword.





Approval of the publication of the refreshed Regeneration Strategy documents  provides solidified strategic direction for Regeneration within Medway. The clear direction of these strategies and accompanying action plans, will also form the basis for future funding applications, and will be used to attract investment in Medway.
