Mon 19 April 2010, 12:17 pm

Work has resumed on two stalled residential developments at Chatham Maritime.
Government Kickstart funding of £6.93 million has enabled development at St Mary’s Island to recommence.
The money is being used to build 102 of the 550 new homes to be developed on the island.

Chris Crook, subsidiary managing director of developer Countryside Properties commented: "This funding marks an exciting new stage at St Mary's Island and we are delighted that we can work together with the HCA to make this possible."

He added: "The new homes planned for the Sail Loft and the continuation for the phase previously called North Shore will ensure that we continue to regenerate this unique waterside location, and provide much needed sustainable, eco-friendly homes."

Jonathan Sadler, Thames Gateway development director at SEEDA, said: "We are extremely pleased that the Kickstart funding has allowed construction to recommence on St Mary’s Island, Chatham Maritime, which is one of the largest regeneration sites in the Thames Gateway.

"The construction project will boost employment in the area as well as helping to meet the demand for high quality homes in the region."
