Sharing the Benefits of Local Development - The Community Board from Rochester Riverside


As part of Countryside and Hyde’s £419m regeneration scheme in Medway, Rochester Riverside has set up a funding programme designed to make sure that Rochester feel the benefits of the landmark development across the local area.

Managed in partnership by Homes England and Medway Council, Rochester Riverside is a leading regeneration programme for the immediate Medway region.

The Rochester Riverside Community Board will help to bring to life worthwhile initiatives and ideas that will enhance the area; so making Rochester’s standing as a great place to live that much stronger.

Managing the funds for community projects across the local area, the Board is offering grants to Individuals and organisations that work locally who are providing services and activities which are designed to strengthen community cohesion.

Rochester Riverside are particularly interested in activities which not only benefit a wide audience or high number of residents, but also be based within the area as defined by Riverside’s community Fund map.

The programme can be seen as a continuous rolling project as there is no deadline and applications can be accepted at any time; however Rochester Riverside do advise the board meet quarterly from February to February when they will review applications.

For more information and how to apply, visit the Rochester Riverside website. If you have any enquiries about the application process or the Community Board, you can contact Susan Saunders, Riverside’s Community Development Manager, by email at
