Peel L&P proud sponsor of Chatham Food and Drink Festival

Chatham Maritime Trust announces Peel L&P as a new sponsor for the 2022 Chatham Food and Drink Festival. Peel L&P has invested in Chatham for over a decade, creating over 400 new homes and 750 jobs, improving open and green space, providing safe access to a much-improved waterfront and is continuing to invest and support the community.

James Whittaker, Executive Director at Peel L&P said: “Chatham and indeed Medway has a rich tapestry of cultures and maritime heritage and what better way to celebrate it than through a waterfront festival. We are pleased to be able to support the community with this sponsorship and hope the event is a huge success.”

On 22nd and 29th June between 10am and 6pm local residents and businesses from across Chatham are invited to drop into Chatham Waters and see first-hand the neighbourhood that has been created and to share their views and opinions on the early vision for the regeneration of Chatham Docks Industrial Estate.

James added: “We have been listening to what local people want and need since we first began regenerating Chatham Waters. We will continue to listen to ensure that when the old lock gates at Chatham Docks Industrial Estate cease to operate beyond 2025, ending its use as a commercial dock, that the land is able to provide greater benefits to the local community for generations to come.”

The two public open days will be held at Unit 4, Ground Floor of The Kell Waterside Apartments, ME4 4SA, opposite the Waterfront UTC between 11am and 6pm on Wednesday 22nd and 29th June 2022.
