Chilmington Green is a hamlet on the edge of the Kentish Weald comprising 10 listed buildings. It is south-west of the town of Ashford.
In 2014, Ashford Borough Council approved plans for a new town of up to 5,750 houses plus a countryside park, a secondary school, four primary schools, a supermarket and a new high street and market square on 1,000 acres of agricultural land around the hamlet.
Some local residents are opposed to the plans and have launched a campaign to resist them.
