Swanley TC

Highlands Hill, Swanley

This is to inform you that following on from our carriageway surface treatment earlier this year Kent County Council will be carrying out adjustment of ironwork (manholes and gully gratings) on Highlands Hill, between its junctions with School Lane and Beechenlea Lane.

Work is due to start on Wednesday 28th June and is expected to last for 3 days.

During these essential works, it will be necessary to close Highlands Hill so that we can carry out the works safely for both the workforce and road users.

Works will take place between the hours of 08:00hrs and 17:00hrs, and the road will be re-opened when it is safe to do so, but it is inevitable that residents and businesses near the works will experience minor disruption, and we aim to keep this to a minimum.

Access to properties within the site will be maintained at all times although vehicle access to individual properties may be restricted for short periods whilst work is carried out.

If you have any particular access requirements, please let the workforce on site know or call us on the number provided below.

A signed diversion route will be in place during the closure via Highlands Hill, B258, B2173 and Beechenlea Lane.

What you can do to help
We need your help to make sure the work is done as quickly as possible.

If your vehicle is usually parked on the carriageway, please could you make sure you park it somewhere else away from the site whilst the works are being carried out.

Please respect our workers space and safety by driving carefully and slowly near where we are working.

Feedback from our workers shows that too many drivers drive too fast.

Our crews work next to moving traffic and risk injury every day, everyone is entitled to a safe workplace.

About The Council

The Council has 16 Councillors elected by the residents every four years.

The Council considers issues affecting the town and services provided.

Each year the Council hosts an Annual Town Meeting (usually in March or April). This meeting is chaired by the Chairman of the Council who reports briefly on work of the Council in the previous year and any resident of the Parish may attend and ask any questions relating to the work of Swanley Town Council.

Swanley Town Council is the part of the Government closest to residents.

Local organisations and groups working for the benefit of the community and Parish of Swanley may apply for a grant from Town Council to assist in their work.

Application forms may be obtained from the Civic Centre. Grants are awarded in July and March each year.

The Town Council is also consulted in the planning process.

Any application for planning permission within Swanley or Swanley Village submitted to the Local Planning Authority (Sevenoaks District Council) is referred to Swanley Town Council for consideration.

Members of the public are welcomed at meetings of the Development Control Committee to express their views on any application on the Agenda.
