Who we are

The Hayes Millennium Sign

Hayes (Kent) is a lovely village in the London Borough of Bromley, located in the North-West corner of Kent. It is within easy reach of London with direct trains to London Bridge and London Charing Cross Stations. It offers frequent and reliable bus connections to Bromley, Croydon, Orpington, Biggin Hill, and Westerham.

The Hayes (Kent) Village Association (HKVA) was founded in 1933 and the Committee, which runs the Association is made up of a group of residents who volunteer to help make Hayes a great place to live ~ For Our Community.

Planning Sub-committee

Planning goes on throughout the year. Each week we check Bromley’s current list of planning applications for Hayes and its adjacent areas, and if necessary letters of objection are sent. The process varies considerably from straightforward to complex and lengthy applications. As well as the numerous drawings and other documents there are reports from consultants, sometimes running to several hundred pages.

If you need assistance in this area then please Contact Us.

  • The Easter Egg Hunt
