After a pause in work during the lockdown period, house building has started again in Ebbsfleet Garden City.
All the developers working here are back on site and building again, whilst adhering to government guidance on social distancing.
They are still selling homes and have an appointment only system for those wanting to view.
You can see who we are working with here https://ebbsfleetdc.org.uk/planning/who-we-are-working-with/ and view what homes they have on sale in Ebbsfleet Garden City.
We are pleased to say that even during this challenging period we have been making great progress on a range of projects to help deliver the Garden City, including appointing master planners for our biggest scheme yet – Ebbsfleet Central. We will announce the consultant team that will help us develop the plans shortly.
We are creating a major centre at the heart of Ebbsfleet Garden City which will deliver a new commercial and residential area providing jobs, homes, community and cultural facilities.

Another exciting project which has just been approved is the direct link for Ebbsfleet Garden City residents to Bluewater via a tunnel and using the Fastrack bus service.
Most residents in Ebbsfleet Garden City will be within a five minute walk of a Fastrack bus stop and that means the new Bluewater route will get residents to the shopping destination quickly and beat the traffic.
You’ll also be able to cycle through the tunnel in 18 seconds and walk through it in a minute.
Work is now nearly complete, having been delayed because of the virus restrictions, on the Springhead Bridge which will connect residents of Springhead Park with Ebbsfleet International, giving them a walking time of approximately seven minutes to the station.

There are now more than 2,000 homes in Ebbsfleet Garden City with approximately 4,800 people living here. The area already has its first primary school, pub and hotel, with two more primaries and another pub and hotel in development as well as plans in for a major secondary school campus.
