Gravesham Accident Claim


Gravesham is a local government district which also holds borough status that is found in the north western part of the ceremonial county of Kent, in the south east of England.

The district shares boundaries with the borough of Dartford and Sevenoaks District to the west, the borough of Tonbridge and Malling to the south, the Medway unitary authority to the east and, without a physical crossing, the Thurrock unitary authority of Essex to the north, across the River Thames estuary. The district’s largest settlement, and its administrative centre, is the town of Gravesend and other notable settlments include the likes of Northfleet and Meopham.

The Formation And Naming Of Gravesham

The local government district of Gravesham was officially formed on the 1st April 1974 as part of the raft of changes to local government all around the UK which were set out by the 1972 Local Government Act. In the case of Gravesham the new district was formed from a merger of the former Gravesend Municipal Borough, Northfleet Urban District and part of Strood Rural District.

The district was given the name of Gravesham and whilst it is unclear as to why, historian Robert H Hiscock has a theory as to where the name came from. This theory comes from the fact that the only place where the name ever appears before its attachment to the new local government district is in the Domesday Book of 1086. It is widely believed that this was a simple transcription error, which for some reason was adopted by the local council some 888 years later.

The Makeup And Population Of Gravesham

The local government district of Gravesham, in its current form, covers a total land area of approximately 38 square miles and is home to around 102,000 permanent residents. This gives the district a population density of around 2,700 per square mile which is actually comparatively high.

What that means is that the district can be the location of a relatively high number of accidents and injuries and it is for that reason that residents may wish to learn more about Gravesham accident claim proceedings.
