JUNCTION 5 SLIPROADS
M25 Eastbound Sevenoaks
Now the political landscape has shifted at Westminster, Tom Tugendhat MP has been able to go public with his strongest statement yet about J5 Slips. The survey below is a bit wordy, but get everyone to complete it, build up the numbers, and we may win yet.
 

 "One of the problems with the M26 is that there are no slip roads to Sevenoaks at its junction with the A21 and M25. This means traffic is forced off at Wrotham Heath, adding to air pollution concerns through Platt, Borough Green and Ightham.

To deliver this, we need Transport for the South East (TfSE) to ensure the project is prioritised. I am disappointed their draft Strategic Investment Plan doesn’t even mention this.

That’s why I’m asking everyone locally to respond and ensure that this much needed project gets the attention from TfSE that it deserves. Take the Survey here.

We have until 12 September 2022 to respond. Please make sure you have your say.
 
Our old friend Alec Broad has sadly passed away. One of the real characters who make village life such a joy, Goodbye, old mate. There will be a private family cremation, but all Alec's friends are invited to a Memorial Service at 2.30 for 2.45 30 August at Borough Green Baptist Chapel, with refreshments afterwards at the Black Horse.

=================================================

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?
