Bosses estimate there will be some 5,100 homes by 2020/21

The 700th home at Ebbsfleet Garden City has been completed.

Ebbsfleet Development Corporation said there are now 703 properties complete, including 102 at Redrow’s Ebbsfleet Green site and 334 by Countryside properties at Springhead Park.

There have also been 21 affordable homes completed by housing association Clarion at Eastern Quarry with a further 146 expected in the next two years.

Paul Spooner, interim chief executive of EDC, said: “There has been a remarkable step change in Ebbsfleet Garden City with seven major housebuilders now on site and hundreds of new completions being achieved.

“In the last year, building work started on more than 600 new properties and if you compare that to the year before when there were none, you can see the rapid progress being made.

“There is now a wide choice of homes available for all salary levels including affordable homes meaning those on average incomes for this area can get their first foot up on the property ladder.”

The garden city recently marked two more milestones with the opening of its first primary school, Cherry Orchard, at Castle Hill and the first pub and restaurant, the Spring River, also opened this month.

The development corporation has also recently announced a series of investments to speed up infrastructure which have included £30m to forward fund electricity supply to the Garden City and £45m towards the cost of improvements at the Bean and Ebbsfleet junctions of the A2.

It estimates some 5,100 homes in the garden city by 2020/21.
