Welcome to the Home Page of Iwade Parish Council

Iwade is a village on the north side of Detling Hill, close to the town of Sittingbourne in Kent.  With quick access to the M2 and M20 motorways, as well as within a short driving distance to Maidstone and further Faversham and Canterbury.

Surrounded by countryside and abutting the Swale Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Ramsar Site, it comprises of 1500 houses and a several retail units, centered around the original Kentish village and historic 'All Saints' Church.  The village is characterised by green spaces and the local architectural style.  It has a primary school, several nurseries, health centre, village hall, Listed Barn, village pub and a post office, in addition to a number of small shops and hair/beauty salons.

It is widely said that the village got its name because of the frequent flooding that would occur, but this is possibly dubious.  Another possible theory is that it was the last place of rest before visitors to the Isle of Sheppey would 'wade' across the Swale at low tide, there being no bridge across until the 20th Century.




The next  meeting of the Parish Council (Planning Committee) will take place on

Wednesday 29th March 2017

Commencing at 7.15 p.m. in Iwade Church
