Bevan Place proposals

You can comment on our plans for homes, shops and a new green open space at former Swanley Working Men’s Club and Bevan Place car park.

We have submitted a planning application to develop this important site that forms the southern entrance to the town.

The development would follow the curve of the site providing an exciting and welcoming new building and allowing space for new public space and gardens.

Protecting the environment and Net Zero carbon emissions is at the heart of the proposals. The building would be highly insulated with energy efficient heating, electric vehicle charging points and cycle parking. The plans also include new trees and other green planting.

The site in Swanley High Street has had many historic uses. During the Victorian period, it was high-density housing.

More recently, it was home to the Working Men’s Club and a small car park. After the Club closed, we purchased the site as part of our plans to improve the southern entrance to Swanley.

The development consists of:

  • 93 much-needed new homes
  • Retail space on the ground floor
  • A new green, public space

In November 2021, we asked for residents’ views on its initial ideas for the site. We revised the proposals to take into account local people’s comments.

You can view our plans and have your say by Monday 18 Jul 2022.
