Neighbourhood partnerships

1. Overview

In partnership with Kent County Council, we've introduced three Neighbourhood Forums - Gravesham Rural, Gravesham East and Gravesend West.

The meetings are fully open to anyone in the borough and will also be attended by county, borough council and parish council members for the locality. The idea is to give communities a say in how local services are run and a voice regarding local issues of concern. 

The format of the meetings will be a workshop style with facilitated round table discussions followed by a question and answer session on the chosen issues.

At the end of the year each forum allocates grant funding to local projects. The funding available is related to the population of each forum area.

Which Forum should I attend?

  • Gravesham Rural Forum wards are: Istead Rise, Meopham North, Meopham South & Vigo, Shorne, Cobham & Luddesdown and Higham.
  • Gravesham East Forum wards are: Riverside, Central, Whitehill, Singlewell, Riverview, Westcourt, and Chalk.
  • Northfleet and Gravesend West Forum wards are: Northfleet North, Northfleet South, Painters Ash, Coldharbour, Woodlands and Pelham.


The forums will meet four times per year.
