Drawn up with Indigo Planning and Planit ie, the 176,000m² project includes a commercial heart incorporating office space, education facilities, a hotel, flats, townhouses, new public areas and a food store.
James Whittaker, development director at Peel said: ‘The feedback we received at the public consultation was invaluable and we are very pleased that so many people [90 per cent of those questioned] were supportive of our plans for Chatham Waters. We have taken the comments received on board and are pleased to have submitted a planning application to Medway Council.’
They said the same about Liverpool Waters when they put a few boards out in a shop in the city centre.
