Rochester West and Borstal

In May 2023, Rochester West becomes Rochester West and Borstal, bringing some of the old River Ward along the Rochester river-front into our community.

This diverse and exciting ward includes much of the new Riverside development, the world famous Historic Rochester, Borstal village and the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty up to this side of Wouldham.
