Gravesend Town Centre,

Respect, Re-engage, Re-energise

More Information

The Gravesend Masterplan is designed to re-engage the town centre with the river, bringing focus back to the historic High Street and the grade II* listed St George’s Church. The scheme is an example of targeted and sensitive regeneration within a small town setting which reacts to the challenges of the rapidly changing relationship between uses within our town centres. The challenge is to deliver a scheme of significant scale which sits comfortably within its heritage setting. The first phase of the development, which achieved planning permission in July 2020, delivers 242 residential (PRS) units and car parking and is progressing on site. The second phase forms an extension to the existing St George’s Shopping Centre, for which LJA has completed a comprehensive refresh.  The development is centred around a new church square which provides a useable and flexible piece of public realm surrounded by a rich mix of uses including commercial, leisure, cultural, community, hospitality and residential to re-energise the town centre heritage quarter.
