Low Council Tax - Better Services - Value for Money
This is the site of your local Rainham Central Councillors, keeping you up to date on what we're doing to help improve the area and represent you on Medway Council.
In May 2007, residents in Rainham elected three Conservative Councillors Cllr Rehman Chishti, Cllr Barry Kemp and Cllr Mike O'Brien to represent the ward of Rainham Central. In May 2010 Rehman Chishti was elected Member of Parliament for Gillingham and Rainham.
On this site you can find out how to contact your local councillor by telephone or e-mail, alternatively we hold regular Street Stall surgeries on the first Saturday of each month at the Rainham Shopping Centre at the top of Station Road Rainham from 10am to 1pm. There's information on the local campaigns we're fighting and how you can get involved and regular updates on the issues that matter to you.
We are determined to make a real difference to Rainham.

Council will shortly be carrying out a resurfacing scheme at the above location commencing on or after MONDAY 10TH AUGUST 2015 FOR 2 WEEKS.
The work will be carried out between the hours of 7.00am and 7.00pm and will require a road closure, however only small sections will be completed at a time to allow access for residents. The contractors may be on site at 7:00am but breaking out of material will not start until 8:00am. I have attached a schedule of works for your information showing the dates the sections are to be completed. This will allow you to remove your vehicle from your driveway prior to the work commencing should you require. We will make every effort to complete the work within the dates given, however dates may be subject to change if we experience poor weather conditions or other issues arise within the working area.

We thought that you might be interested in the following information concerning Arriva Bus Services through Rainham Central which are due to be implemented from the 12th July:
120/121- minor timing change on one journey 132- This will increase to every 10 minutes Monday to Saturday; Sundays remain at every 30 minutes. New Loop service (replaces 116) - This will be a new service which will run via Chatham, Dockside Outlet, The University, Gillingham, Medway Hospital, Tescos Rainham Mark, Twydall, Rainham, Hempstead and Luton. This will run every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday from morning to early evening as the 116 currently does. There is a slight reduction in frequency from every 30 minutes to every 30 minutes. Please note that Arriva have posted some posters which state that Maidstone Road Rainham will no longer be served. This is INCORRECT and an error on their part which they are rectifying with new posters. Read more...
