About This Website

I, John Ward, was a councillor on Medway Unitary Authority from May 2000, representing what was then Horsted ward, and since the boundary review in 2003, now representing the much-enlarged Rochester South and Horsted (RSH) ward. I resigned from the Council on 25th March 2008.

This website is first and foremost a resource showing the council's political structure, news, ward activities; planning, licensing and road matters within the ward. There are even two personal political comment columns, not forgetting my own 'blog.

The blue buttons down the left side open the various subjects' own pages. On the right on this page are a few quick links to possibly the most useful and relevant websites. It is all very simple to navigate. I hope your visit here is useful.

Please be aware that I am no longer a Councillor, and no longer have access to the internal information sources within the council, so this website will not be able to be kept as well updated in future. I hope to leave it standing, and with some updates, as a kind of memorial to show what I did provide for Medway residents in the hope that someone else will produce something similar.
