Making Space for Sevenoaks - Buckhurst 2 car park proposals

Sevenoaks is a great place to live and work but a lack of long stay parking in our town centre is impacting on residents and businesses.

To meet this urgent need for additional long stay parking, we're proposing the construction of a new car park on Buckhurst Lane, which will help:

  • Provide spaces for the significant number of people currently on waiting lists for parking permits
  • Ease congestion, reducing the number of motorists driving around in search of spaces
  • Free up parking in short stay car parks and in residential streets
  • Support the continued economic success of the town

A planning application for the car park and 10 town houses was submitted in July 2017. The planning application reference is 17/02149/FUL.

View and comment on the planning application online

You can also comment on the application by writing to us at: Development Management, Sevenoaks District Council, Argyle Road, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN13 1HG or by e-mailing You must include your name, address and the planning application reference. The public will be able to view all planning comments made about this application on our planning website.

The deadline for comments is Tuesday 22 August 2017.

If planning permission is successful, construction could begin in January 2018.
