Planning permission was given last week (Wednesday, April 18) for a further 205 homes in Ebbsfleet Garden City.

The third phase of Redrow’s Ebbsfleet Green site will see a selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes, including 41 affordable homes.

Eventually, Ebbsfleet Green will provide up to 950 homes in the Garden City, plus a village centre, park, sports pitches and a primary school.

A restaurant, pub and hotel are already open on the development and Redrow will soon be building its South East headquarters in Ebbsfleet Garden City.

Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, which is overseeing the development of the Garden City, gave approval at its planning committee tonight on April 18.

Ian Piper, chief executive of Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, said: “We welcome the latest phase for the Ebbsfleet Green site which boasts a wide variety of quality housing for all types of purchasers.

“It is a further sign of the progress that is being made in the Garden City to provide more new homes.”

The government announced plans in 2014 to create a new locally-led garden city at Ebbsfleet, capable of providing up to 15,000 new homes based predominately on brownfield land or former quarries.

The area surrounds the boundaries of Gravesham and Dartford boroughs, and contains a number of strategic sites.

David Banfield, Planning Director at Redrow South East, said: “It’s fantastic to have secured consent for a further 205 new homes at Ebbsfleet Green as part of our overall vision to deliver a community of up to 950 homes.

“The wide range of homes and vital community infrastructure we are providing is appealing to young professionals, families and downsizers, creating a vibrant and diverse community.

“Over 110 properties are now occupied and those who have moved in and are benefitting from everything the Garden City has to offer, including excellent connections to central London and the surrounding area.”

Last week it was announced that a multi-million pound land deal for neighbouring East Quarry will see a further 2,900 homes and facilities built in a new village next to the existing Castle Hill village.
