About The Council
The Council has 16 Councillors elected by the residents every four years.
The Council considers issues affecting the town and services provided.
Each year the Council hosts an Annual Town Meeting (usually in March or April). This meeting is chaired by the Chairman of the Council who reports briefly on work of the Council in the previous year and any resident of the Parish may attend and ask any questions relating to the work of Swanley Town Council.
Swanley Town Council is the part of the Government closest to residents.
Local organisations and groups working for the benefit of the community and Parish of Swanley may apply for a grant from Town Council to assist in their work.
Application forms may be obtained from the Civic Centre. Grants are awarded in July and March each year.
The Town Council is also consulted in the planning process.
Any application for planning permission within Swanley or Swanley Village submitted to the Local Planning Authority (Sevenoaks District Council) is referred to Swanley Town Council for consideration.
Members of the public are welcomed at meetings of the Development Control Committee to express their views on any application on the Agenda.
Details on how to do this are available here.
