Located on a prominent island corner of The Brook and High Street in Chatham, the site is currently comprised of the former Go Outdoors retail store and a vacant multi-storey car park accessed from Cross Street and the Market Hall building, which is currently occupied by HomePlus Furniture.

The site was previously occupied by Tesco for a significant number of years, and subsequently Go Outdoors, but has remained vacant for some time. Due to low occupancy and antisocial behaviour, the car park was closed in 2022 by Medway Council pending the future of the site as a whole.

The site sits adjacent to the Brompton Lines and New Road Chatham Conservation Areas and is nearby to several locally listed buildings and the Great Lines Heritage Park. Whilst the site does not share any visibility or direct relationship with any of the Listed buildings in the vicinity, a Visual Impact Assessment and Heritage Assessment are being undertaken to ensure our plans for the site have no impact on the existing heritage assets.

We are now seeking feedback on our emerging proposals for this site. You can see the proposals in more detail by visiting the Our proposals tab on this website.

You can leave your feedback here. The consultation will run from Monday 11 March 2024 to Monday 25 March 2024, and we welcome your comments.
