Theatre Quarter, an mhs homes development consisting of 26 apartments, has been built on the site of Medway’s Theatre Royal auditorium.
The properties will be available for affordable rent, market rent and shared ownership, with two of the homes at affordable rent accessible for wheelchair users.
They were built by Medway contractors Jenner Group and funded by a £650,000 grant from the Homes and Communities Agency.
Tracey Crouch, MP for Chatham and Aylesford, alongside representatives from Jenner Group and Medway Council attended a launch event for the scheme last month (March).
Crouch said: “I am delighted to see that the former Theatre Royal auditorium site has been transformed into affordable homes. This new development is just a small part of the regeneration taking place across Chatham and I would like to thank everyone that helped to make this scheme a success. “
