Ebbsfleet Garden City To Get Its Centre At Last

A major new centre at the heart of Ebbsfleet Garden City is to be created after a deal to buy land was completed.

Ebbsfleet Central will deliver a new commercial and residential centre within the Garden City providing jobs, homes, community and cultural facilities. Ebbsfleet Development Corporation has had a vision for its new city centre since 2015 but the development has been stalled up until now. The corporation’s purchase of the 125 ha site now means it can take control and unlock the site in order to deliver the development.

Michael Cassidy CBE, chairman of the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation board said: “This is the most exciting project to happen in Ebbsfleet Garden City to date and we aim to create a centre that is vibrant and creates economic opportunities that will be enjoyed by people for years to come.

“We will now be talking to developers and investors to maximise the enormous potential Ebbsfleet Central will bring for all.”

Ebbsfleet Garden City is an ambitious scheme to create a major new community in north Kent. There are currently more than 1,700 homes here and eventually up to 15,000 could be built. The scheme could contribute significantly towards addressing the housing shortage in south east England and have a major impact on the property market in Kent.
