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.

Several local residents have contacted us to express their concern regarding possible large scale developments on ‘green field’ sites in the East Rainham area. Any such development will have an impact on existing local roads, health services, schools, etc and it is therefore important that those living in the area are able to make their voices heard, with the assistance of their local Rainham Councillors. Accordingly, we have arranged with the Council’s Planning Department a Meeting to be held at the Millennium Centre at the rear of St. Margaret’s Church, Rainham on Tuesday, 10th February 2015 at 7.30 pm. At this Meeting, Senior Planning Officers will be available together with your Rainham Councillors. The purpose is to explain: - The various stages of the planning process and where proposals for each site have got to. How residents can make their voices heard, supported by their local Councillors. To listen to the concerns of residents in an informal setting and to answer their questions. PLEASE DO TRY AND ATTEND SO WE CAN HELP YOU From Rainham Cllrs.
