Get Involved to shape Sevenoaks, says Merilyn Canet - Lib Dem leader on District Council
By Alan Bullion
Cllr Merilyn Canet at Bradbourne Lakes
Sevenoaks Town and District Councils are drawing up plans which will change our community for ever.
Central to this is a major investment project at Bat & Ball:
- for a new Community Centre and Town Council Office, replacing the Centre built by hard working volunteers in the 1970s
- to reopen Bat and Ball station building as a Café with Community meeting rooms after 30 years lying empty
All this is likely to cost about £4 million - mostly your money as Council Taxpayers. So we need to be sure it reflects what local people want, and will use.
On top of this there are ideas being looked at to make the whole area a better place to live - more housing, green space, access to the Wildlife Centre from Bat and Ball, and making it easier to walk to school.
The Town Council is paying consultants to start a consultation exercise and come up with ideas.
We want to be sure they are YOUR ideas - not imposed from outside.
