BOROUGH GREEN NEWS - Happy New Year, Adrian
The Government are running two consultations. We need to generate a mass of individual responses supporting Junction 5 Slips at Sevenoaks, using the M26 to bypass Borough Green. Follow the consultation links, or email your own thoughts direct. They can be as simple as :
For years Borough Green has suffered from horrendous traffic congestion and air pollution because national traffic has to come through our villages because the junction between the A21/M25/M26 at Sevenoaks was never completed. A few hundred yards of slip roads to complete this major junction and all that through traffic could bypass East Sevenoaks, Seal, Borough Green Wrotham and Platt on the M26".

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".
