SMIRA update on parking consultation
26 November 2019
The SMIRA Board is very disappointed that the new consultation undertaken by Medway Council and supported by local Councillors was launched online without prior notice to either SMIRA or by writing to residents first.
As always, SMIRA encourages resident voice and urges all residents to complete the consultation using the following link: https://www.medway.gov.uk/…/st_marys_island_controlled_park…
It is important residents have their say and SMIRA will use all its website, social media, notice boards and email to ensure its members are made aware of the consultation.
The deadline for the consultation is 31st December 2019.
To write directly to our ward councillors please use the following:
Cllr Habib Tejan

Time for the annual planting day on the island! Residents were invited to help Chatham Maritime Trust and Gavin Jones plant the bulbs for spring next year. Thank you to all the residents that came to help!
On the same day, Living River Foundation organised a Community Clean Up. You can find out about future litter picks on Living River Foundation Facebook page here.
