The site is located on Medway City Estate, Rochester which is in the heart of Medway Towns, the largest urban conurbation in the South East, outside London and at the centre of the Thames Gateway Regeneration area.
The site is occupied by Viridor, a waste management facility. The site benefits from a wide-ranging planning permission for the operation of this Waste Park which includes waste recycling, waste storage, waste treatment, waste processing of 670,000 tonnes per annum, waste transfer, thermal treatment, and gasification. Operating 24/7, 365 days per year, this not only provides the ability to recover vital resources including energy from waste this also helps achieve higher recovery targets.
The site benefits from a direct link to the Medway Towns northern bypass giving easy efficient access to the area it services and vital onward connection to the out of county network. The site also has frontage to the River Medway with the potential creation of wharf, with the potential of river transport in the future not only for the dispatch but receipt of materials.
