About us

Medway Valley Countryside Partnership is based at Sandling just outside of Maidstone. We work in all parishes in the boroughs of Maidstone and Tonbridge & Malling and sometimes extend to the wider River Medway catchment too.


We work in partnership with a multitude of like minded conservation organisations across Kent such as the Kent & Medway Biological Records Centre the Kent Wildife Trust and our sister Countryside Management Partnerships across the county.
