St Georges tech centre

Operators are being sought for a new flexible workspace based at Gravesend’s St George’s centre.

In the heart of the town and within a short walk of the train station and riverside, it will cater for organisations and individuals seeking modern, digitally connected workspace.

A successful bid by our economic development team to the Getting Building Fund managed by the South-East Local Enterprise Partnership and Kent County Council, has secured £370,000 to help with the costs of the refurbishment of former retail units into a workspace with meeting rooms, event space and other related services.

There are more than 400 registered businesses in the creative and digital sectors alone in Gravesham and the council is keen to create the space and wider eco-system to support the growth of fledgling and established local enterprises.

Cllr Lauren Sullivan, Cabinet Member for Community and Leisure, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for a forward-thinking and proactive operator to help create an inspirational working environment for new and growing businesses, for co-working spaces. 

“Post Covid we have seen more flexible working arrangements and patterns and are looking to give opportunities for people to work in Gravesham in a professional environment where they can turn their ideas into reality.

“We have a wealth of creative and entrepreneurial talent in Gravesham who we are looking to support and develop, and our new flexible workspace is one part of the wider picture to evolve our local economy and make it fit for the future.”

If you are a workspace operator and would like to discuss this opportunity further, in the first instance please contact: or call 01474 337258
