A vision for Swanley and Hextable, Kent

An exciting opportunity to identify scenarios for growth and development

Swanley and Hextable presented an exciting opportunity. Swanley is Sevenoaks Districts’ second largest town and together the population of the two settlements exceeds that of Sevenoaks town itself. They occupy a strategic location just within the M25 on a direct rail link into central London. There were signs of interest in investment in Swanley Town Centre and the time was right to consider how the settlements can improve and grow.

This study identified scenarios for growth and development to help inform the emerging Local Plan for Sevenoaks district.

Within this context, a consultant team led by Tibbalds in association with BBP Regeneration and Urban Flow were appointed by Sevenoaks District Council to prepare a Vision for Swanley and Hextable.

The key aim of the vision was to support the regeneration of both areas, in particular Swanley town centre, housing, retail and transport infrastructure and also to consider the replacement of Swanley’s leisure centre.

The study now forms part of the evidence base for the new Local Plan and needs to be considered alongside a suite of other technical evidence documents prepared by the Council. This will then help shape a preferred direction of growth, new policies and investment opportunities in the town.
