Town Centre Planning Appeal Hearing

During the start of today's planning hearing on the future of Swanley Town Centre, the Planning Inspector made a judgement to DEFER the planning appeal hearing until June.

This means there will be NO hearing this week or next.

No decision was made about the future of the town centre, and whether or not the plans by U&I for the 11 storey and other buildings should be approved.

The deferment was due to a number of communicative errors that came to light about the hearing, and therefore, to allow residents the full opportunity of attending, the hearing will be deferred until a (likely) June date.

We would like to clarify none of these errors were due to Swanley Town Council, which provided the room for the hearing.

We will post more information when it becomes available, and when the date will be rescheduled for.

About Us

Swanley lies at the northernmost point of the area of Sevenoaks District Council and also within the administrative area of Kent County Council.

Swanley Town Council came into existence in 1974 and though unlike the County and District Council, it has few statutory duties (things that have to be done) it does have many powers (things that can be done).

The Town Council seeks to exercise its powers for the benefit of the community of Swanley and Swanley Village.

There are four wards in the town, which are Christchurch, St Marys and Whiteoak wards in Swanley as well a ward in Swanley Village, see Councillors and Wards for more information.

The Town Council owns around 150 acres of parks and open spaces, including the principal parks of Swanley Park and St Marys Recreation.

Swanley Town Council provides a variety of recreation, social and other facilities for the benefit of residents and people who work in and visit the Parish area, working in partnership with other Councils and agencies to promote and deliver local services.

Here you can be kept up to date with the latest events, Council meetings and have a platform to voice your opinions or concerns about Swanley.

We want you to feel valued and to make you feel proud to be a resident of Swanley.
