A elegant new community...

All-new Medway crossing

delivers first class transport links

Wildlife habitats and rare flora and fauna have been protected

Shops, sports amenities and this school are under construction


Building a new crossing over the River Medway was the key to developing first class transport links for Peters Village and its neighbouring communities, but developer Trenport is committed to ensuring that bus services complement the existing road and rail networks.

So, as more new homes are completed on the development, Trenport is fulfilling its pledge to upgrade public transport: two interdependent changes are proposed.

One is an extension to the existing 155 route, which could later link into an all-new service on the east bank of the River Medway.
Up to £276,000 a year will be spent on these improved services, a cost funded by Trenport as part of its Peters Village planning obligations to Kent County Council (KCC). The council then distributes this money as a public transport subsidy to companies providing the new or improved routes. read more


Trenport has spent heavily and worked hard to be a responsible steward for the site’s natural landscape, flora and fauna.

Management of the Peters Pit Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) has adhered to a 1990s programme agreed with the Government-backed Natural England (and its predecessor English Nature) and Kent Wildlife Trust.

This programme and management by KWT – costing £20,000 a year and met by Trenport – is consistently reviewed and approved by Natural England, which recently made a special inspection and awarded another clean bill of health for the SSSI team’s sterling work. Trenport has also guaranteed long term protection, management and enhancement of the SSSI during and after the Peters Village development. read more

Peters Village - In Brief

The net area of Peters Village development is approximately 35.05 hectares (86.61 acres) - 11.1 hectares (27.3 acres) is set aside as public open space.

The development will be mostly low rise, and includes a showpiece riverside promenade with timber and composite riverbank cladding and block paviors for the walkway/cycleway. A few slightly taller homes will echo the riverside elevation of the former cement works that used to occupy the site.

A new local centre next to the river will include: community centre, medical centre, shops and employment units.

This wide-ranging project also includes: a new primary school, new areas of open space and playing fields, plus the protection and management of the Peters Pit nature reserve.
