Name Change for Parish Council


Brenchley Parish Council
Proposed Change of Name

For some time it has been widely recognised that the name of the Parish Council serving the residents and businesses of Brenchley Parish does not incorporate the name of the village of Matfield. The Parish Council considers that a change of name would better reflect the identity and character of the Parish. It has thus resolved to change its name to Brenchley and Matfield Parish Council and intends to apply to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council to make the change.

This notice is to seek the views of residents, community organizations, and businesses, about the proposed change of name. Your views and comments would be welcomed and will be submitted with the application to the Borough Council. Please write to the Clerk, Matfield Pavilion, The Green, Matfield, Kent, TN12 7JU, or email

The closing date for this consultation is 21 May 2018.
