Kings Hill is a civil parish in the Borough of Tonbridge and Malling in Kent, England. Development started in 1989 near West Malling, on land previously occupied by the Ministry of Defence as the airfield RAF West Malling. The plan is for a multi-purpose site of both residential and office/business space. The ultimate aim is to have some 2500 homes and 1 million square feet (93,000 m²) of commercial properties.
Kings Hill has become home to several council offices and company headquarters. Kings Hill has, amongst other points of interest: an Asda supermarket, a Shepherd Neame public house named "The Spitfire", two primary schools, smaller shops, doctor's surgery, vets, an optician, pharmacist, restaurants, cafés and bars.
The 2004 Wealth of the Nation report listed the Kings Hill postcode sector (ME19 4), as having the highest average income and the highest proportion of households earning greater than £100,000 per annum in Great Britain. Although Kings Hill remains conspicuously wealthy it does not appear in the 2006 report.
Public transport Edit
Kings Hill has frequent bus services to and from West Malling, Maidstone, Chatham and Tunbridge Wells. The nearest railway station is "West Malling for Kings Hill", located in West Malling, with a regular shuttle bus service (Nu-Venture 123) operating between Kings Hill and the station on Mondays to Fridays.
Kings Hill has its own cricket club. Established in 2006 Kings Hill Cricket Club was set up to make use of the new cricket pitch opposite the Discovery School. The Club played its inaugural match against Town Malling Cricket Club in September 2006 at the historic Old County Ground, West Malling.
