BOROUGH GREEN

Borough Green is a small village on the A25 in Kent, midway between Sevenoaks and Maidstone. The civil parish was created on 1st April 1934 by Statutory Instrument (SI) 1934/261 (Source FA Young-Guide to the Local Government Units of England, Royal Historical Society 1979). The civil parishes of Platt and Plaxtol were created at the same time from Wrotham Urban District Council after a boundary review in 1932.

Borough Green is the smallest Parish in Kent set, but with a population of 3600 is also one of the most densely populated non-urban areas.

It is now the hub village for Platt, Wrotham, Ightham, Plaxtol, Shipbourne and Stansted. All are members of a loose Parish Alliance, working closely together on "cross border" issues and major planning projects like Tonbridge & Malling's new Local Plan.

The National Playing Fields Association name Borough Green the "DIY Village" in 1954, a title it is very proud of, and since then has built a large Skatepark, a new Sports Pavilion and Pitches, and every year a team of volunteers build and erect the Village Christmas lights.
