Park Director Ryan Hayman said 'This is us showing our gratitude to those on the frontline, they are heroes and we just wanted to do something to reflect that.'

Swanley Park’s car parks

From Wednesday 20th of May, Swanley Park’s car parks will be open once again.

Whilst we welcome those entering our park we must remind all park users of the requirement for social distancing at ALL times.

For now, and until the guidelines change, the only facilities open will be the café for takeaways and limited toilet provisions.

When entering our car park, staff will no longer be around to greet our guests.

However, a new ANPR system will be live and this will mean visitors will have to follow the relevant payment terms as listed on the signage in the car parks when you arrive.

Swanley residents do not need to pay, but only if they have followed previous advice to register their vehicle at Swanley’s Link.

If you have yet to do this then this can now be done electronically through sending a copy of your driving licence and car registration details to CSA@swanleytowncouncil.gov.uk


If you have any spare food, toilet roll or any other essentials you would like to donate please drop off to either Swanley Link or our Civic Centre.

If you have a family member, friend or neighbour that is in need of supplies and cannot get out please call us on 01322 665855.

Any spare supplies we do not give away will be donated to local food banks.

About Us

Swanley lies at the northernmost point of the area of Sevenoaks District Council and also within the administrative area of Kent County Council.

Swanley Town Council came into existence in 1974 and though unlike the County and District Council, it has few statutory duties (things that have to be done) it does have many powers (things that can be done).

The Town Council seeks to exercise its powers for the benefit of the community of Swanley and Swanley Village.

There are four wards in the town, which are Christchurch, St Marys and Whiteoak wards in Swanley as well a ward in Swanley Village, see Councillors and Wards for more information.

The Town Council owns around 150 acres of parks and open spaces, including the principal parks of Swanley Park and St Marys Recreation.

Swanley Town Council provides a variety of recreation, social and other facilities for the benefit of residents and people who work in and visit the Parish area, working in partnership with other Councils and agencies to promote and deliver local services.

Here you can be kept up to date with the latest events, Council meetings and have a platform to voice your opinions or concerns about Swanley.

We want you to feel valued and to make you feel proud to be a resident of Swanley.
