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.

In April there are a number of bus services changes coming up. Please find details below.
Sunday Service 327- Sunday March 30 2014 will be the last day of operation for the 327 service. This is as a result of the funding from Kent County Council ceasing which helps to support this service. Medway Council and Kent County Council regret that this cut has been necessary but this has been as a result of budgetary pressures and extremely low levels of usage. Medway Council's level of support will be reinvested into the 132 service. Read more...
