In 2005 Calmont purchased the land that used to be the village petrol station and garage "Quinneys Auto services" and converted it into a prosperous development named after the petrol station. The development features 16 houses and 4 apartments, 12 are semi-detached houses under the name of "Albany" and 4 terraced homes under the name of "Carlton", both of which are 3 bedroom houses. The apartments each have their own names; Bloomsbury, Belgravia, Chelsea and Mayfair. The private road on which the houses lie is called "Quinneys Place", some mapping tools and postcode finders still do not have this road indexed in their databases.
Swalecliffe School was recently in the media for pioneering a new lunch-time meal scheme, whereby pupils can help themselves to as much fruit and vegetables as they want. The new scheme has proven to be a great success with school dinner uptake growing to 40% of pupils. There are ABC Pre Schools.
There is a village church and village hall.
