Welcome to the website for Hoo St Werburgh and Chattenden Parish Council and the villages of Hoo and Chattenden.

Hoo Parish Council is a coastal civil parish on the Hoo Peninsula, located near the historic city of Rochester in Kent.  We represent and serve the communities and villages of Hoo and Chattenden.  The Hoo Peninsula is flanked by the River Thames to the North and the River Medway to the South and is home to internationally and nationally protected wildlife sites including, most famously, Lodge Hill SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest), known for its Nightingale population.  Hoo and Chattenden are neighboured by High Halstow to the North, Stoke to the East, Upnor to the South and Wainscott to the West.  We are a rural community with strong connections to farming, equestrian, ornithology and fishing.  

Our website is regularly updated so please keep visiting.
