Medway Elects
Council: Consult on Sales of Open Land Space

4 December 2003


The council considered a proposal submitted by Councillor Godwin and supported by Councillor Murray that:

This council condemns the current administration's practice of selling Medway's precious open space for development without consulting local residents and calls for:

  • those residents affected by the sale of the former Priestfields' Nursery site and the open space at Compass Close and at The Tideway to be consulted about alternative uses for the land; and
  • any future sales of open land space to be subject to full public consultation.

On being put to the vote, the motion was lost.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020.
