Today (15 March 2023), local businesses, residents and Councillors were among the guests to preview the ‘Meeting Point’, a brand new work hub in Swanley that will support jobs and the local economy.
The Meeting Point, at 29 High Street, Swanley, was designed and built by Sevenoaks District Council to provide space for new and existing businesses and homeworkers looking for a vibrant place to work without the overheads of running their own office.
The new, modern facility provides dedicated desk space, meeting rooms, offices and an events space together with onsite business support and business events.
Meeting rooms and the event space are also available for community hire during weekday evenings and Saturdays.
As well as viewing the facility, guests were treated to a support taster session from business experts Smarter Society that will be available at the Meeting Point.
Cllr Peter Fleming, Leader of Sevenoaks District Council, says: “The Meeting Point is our latest initiative to support and grow our local economy. This new facility will support the next generation of businesses as well as existing businesses and homeworkers who want to work in an exciting, collaborative environment. It will bring in new footfall to the area, benefitting many local businesses.
“Located a short walk from Swanley station, and close to Junction 3 of the M25, the Meeting Point is a great location for both Sevenoaks District businesses and any business with connections to the capital.
“The Meeting Point is also part of our wider ambitions, along with the new Swanley rail station and Elizabeth House to regenerate the all-important southern gateway to Swanley.”
To support the Council’s Net Zero commitments, the Meeting Point and the new homes above it have energy efficient air source heating, electric vehicle charging points, cycle parking and access to a communal, wildlife friendly garden.
