Gatwick Campaigners

RESIDENTS of Tunbridge Wells have more disposable income than in any other part of Kent, figures from the Office for National Statistics have revealed.

After taxes, national insurance, pension contributions and interest have been deducted from pay-packets, the collective amount of money left for people in the borough to spend on goods and services, or to save, is £3.1 billion.

Although the total is less than Maidstone (£3.5billion) and Canterbury (£3.2billion), when divided by population the Gross Disposable Household Income (GDHI) of the borough is £26,805 per head.

Sevenoaks has the second highest GDHI per head, at £24,217, while Tonbridge is fourth, on £23,273, behind Dartford (£24,018). The Kent average is £20,176.
