Aylesham Village, with a population of about 4000, was built in the 1920s to provide housing for the miners who came to work in the new Kent coalmines. Following the closure of the pits in the 1980s, a wide range of community initiatives, funded both locally and nationally, are being introduced to provide leisure facilities and alternative employment opportunities. The Aylesham Master Plan is currently under way to regenerate and expand the village, and includes plans for 1000 new houses.
