Developers Peel Waters, part of Peel Land & Property have announced proposals for a transformation of the area around Chatham waters called Basin3, turning the brownfield land into circa 31,000m² of adaptable workspace
The developers say that through the transformation of brownfield land into a cutting-edge business and enterprise campus, Basin3 represents a step towards sustainable urban development. It aims to efficiently use land resources, introducing eco-friendly infrastructure, energy-efficient buildings, and sustainable transport options, aligning with Medway’s broader sustainability goals
They would like to open the waterfront at the Basin3 campus to the public for the first time ever, creating a new tree lined promenade stretching over half a kilometre and connecting St Mary’s Island with Chatham Waters. The plans include dedicated routes for pedestrians and cyclists, along with green spaces to play, relax and meet.
They will be open to meet walk in visitors on Tuesday 21st November 20203 between 2-8pm at Unit 4 Ground Floor, The Kell, Chatham Waters, Gillingham Gate Road, Gillingham,
Kent, ME4 4RS.
Opponents to the new developments say that the promise of hundreds of new jobs is ‘silly talk’. They say that in the past job opportunities were promised, only for plans to change and it has just turned into a giant housing development.
