The new Fort Pitt ward stretches broadly between City Way and Maidstone Road, Chatham. It includes Chatham Railway Station and extends to the Sun Pier stretch of the river connecting Chatham with historic Rochester. It is a unique mix of popular and established residential areas with retail, leisure, maritime and commercial zones. Fort Pitt is a richly diverse and great place to live and work in.
An experienced team for Fort Pitt.
All three of our candidates, Gloria Opara, Richard Thorne, and Rupert Turpin are already experienced councillors, and are ready to represent this exciting new ward.

- An effective river strategy

We will also strive to:
