TMBC are misleading us - you might think from the BGGC EXTRACT that it is ONLY 1720 houses, better than 3-4000, but look at the TIMETABLE tucked away at the very back and you will find the whole 3000 are there, just spread out a bit. And TMBC's own Call for Sites says BGGC could be 4138 houses, but they also have to leave room for shops, schools and medical services.

BOROUGH GREEN GARDEN CITY  

Have TMBC learnt nothing? All the problems with the Landfill Sites they have already built houses on, they are now planning even more Local Landfill sites - more

Apparently there was a meeting of High Level Council Leaders and the like, discussing Proposed Boundary changes. Leader of Sevenoaks said that it was likely that Ightham, Wrotham and Stansted would become part of Sevenoaks, and someone asked "Why not Borough Green?". The Leader of Sevenoaks Council said :

" Borough Green? - NEVER - Borough Green is trouble on steroids".

I feel so proud, should we adopt this as a Village Coat of Arms?
