Gillingham Town Design Statement:

A 108-page document describing the built and natural environment of the town can be downloaded at  Hard copies of the Town Design Statement are available for viewing in the Town Hall and in the Library.   The document identifies what is best about design in Gillingham and what is considered not to have been appropriate for the town. It has covered every aspect of design and layout and has the potential for being a blueprint for future planning. It was adopted as an evidence-based study by NDDC in March 2012 and will be regarded as a contributory part of the Neighbourhood Plan.
