BOROUGH GREEN PARISH COUNCIL
STANDARDS HEARING - NOT GUILTY
On 13th June at a TMBC Standards Hearing, Cllrs Rayner, Betts and Taylor were found NOT GUILTY of bringing their office into disrepute after allegations were lodged by the Chair of Governors at Wrotham School. The Panel decided that they were acting wholly within their elected duties to protect public money. Neither the Head nor Chair of Governers attended the hearing, and crucial CCTV evidence had been "lost". Cllr Taylor was found guilty on a seperate allegation, in that he did not offer to move his van when the Headmaster advised he was blocked in. Standards Board Evidence Report

With the loss of the Borough Green & Platt Bypass in 2007, Borough Green Parish Council has supported the campaign to build East Facing Slips at Sevenoaks, to use the M26 as a West Kent Bypass to divert long distance traffic away from our villages, and to kickstart the Local Economy by plugging the whole of West Kent into the National Motorway Network
