If elected in 2019 Swanley Labour Party will build a new community centre in Swanley Park.
This will be a multipurpose facility in the lower car park. It will provide much needed space for community groups within the town along with changing facilities for the new rugby pitches.
We do highly value the contribution that volunteer organisations make to our quality of life within Swanley and appreciate that many just need an affordable meeting place.
Likewise, since the closure and destruction of the Woodlands community halls, residents are hard pressed to find rooms to hire for self- catering family parties.
Finally, after 6 years of unnecessary delay the new playing fields in the park are at last being used by a successful rugby club which would greatly benefit from changing room provision adjacent to the ground.
In all a new facility would respond to the needs of residents and greatly enhance the range of services provided by the town.
