The Formation Of The Tonbridge And Malling District
As is true of a large majority of local government districts within the United Kingdom, that of Tonbridge and Malling was officially created on the 1st April 1974 as a result of the changes brought by the 1972 Local Government Act. That act created a whole host of new districts and boroughs by merging former administrative entities, in a widespread reorganisation of local government nationwide.
In the case of Tonbridge and Malling, the former entities which were merged were the urban district of Tonbridge, the Malling Rural District and the villages of Hadlow and Hildenborough from the Tonbridge Rural District. The newly formed district covered an area of around 93 square miles and was named for its two main settlements.
