Rochester Riverside, Medway
bptw planning is acting as planning consultant for the redevelopment of Rochester Riverside, a major regeneration project which will see the transformation of the area, extending the city centre of one of South East England’s most historic cathedral cities. bptw planning has prepared and managed the submission of a hybrid planning application consisting of a detailed application for 489 homes, new open spaces, 81 bed hotel and commercial floorspace in Phases 1-3 and outline application for up to 1,400 homes across the whole masterplan area together with a new primary school and commercial floorspace.
