Design for Ebbsfleet

We are providing design guidance on how to use Ebbsfleet’s spectacular landscapes and cultural heritage to inform the design of characterful and distinctive homes, streets and neighbourhoods within the Garden City.

In recent years there has been much discussion over the similarity in the design of housing across the country. Many new housing developments have failed to respond to the richness variety of our landscapes, the historic patterns of towns and villages, or the traditional building forms, local materials and feature detailing that has evolved in different parts of the country.

In Ebbsfleet, EDC is keen to set out the expectation for how we can use Ebbsfleet’s spectacular landscapes and cultural heritage to inform the design of characterful and distinctive homes, streets and neighbourhoods within the Garden City. To do this we have commissioned Proctor and Matthews Architects to work with us to develop the ‘Design for Ebbsfleet’ study. This study is intended to be used as a non-statutory design guide, providing direction for designers when developing their design strategies to ensure they build on a study of our heritage and landscapes between Dartford and Gravesend.
