Spirit of Sittingbourne latest

Friday 5 May

Signs of town centre regeneration  

There signs of change are coming, as the Spirit of Sittingbourne regeneration project moves into the next phase.

To mark the imminent start of the first construction work for the project, new hoardings have gone up showing the new retail units being built on Eurolink Way.

The new big box retail units will be home to popular high street names including Home Bargains, and are the first element of the £57 million regeneration project that will transform the town centre.

Demolition began in February, with the depot being taken down before the site was cleared in preparation for construction which is expected to begin in a months’ time.

Timings for further work for the regeneration scheme are currently being finalised as the Spirit of Sittingbourne consortium work with utilities companies, Kent Highways and local landowners to manage the different elements of the scheme.

Some initial utility works on St Michael’s Road are expected to begin next week, with enabling works taking place for three weeks from 8 May, but mainly restricted to footpaths so no traffic disruption except to Station Road during off peak times.

This needs to be carefully planned to balance the need to get the sequencing right to minimise any disruption to the local road network, and making sure preparations for the construction phase are carried out.

Once confirmed, these plans will be shared publicly to make sure people know what is happening, when, and how long it is expected to take.
