Ebbsfleet Development Corporation has set-up the Ebbsfleet Design Forum to help to enhance the quality of buildings, streets and parks in Ebbsfleet Garden City.

The Forum will typically bring together a panel of five design advisors, with a project’s client and design team,  to collectively review the scheme design at an early stage. The aim is to identify opportunities to improve the quality and performance of the scheme for everyone.

EDC has appointed Design South East to run the Ebbsfleet Design Forum on its behalf.

For full details on how to book your Design Forum session please click here,  for the Ebbsfleet Design Forum Handbook.

Which projects should be reviewed by the Design Forum?

All significant projects being submitted for planning approval are expected to be reviewed by the Ebbsfleet Design Forum.

EDC will also be taking its own projects to the Design Forum.

The Design Forum will provide independent advice and expertise from a range of design specialisms, to help applicants and their design teams deliver the optimum quality and value from their projects.


The following dates are programmed for future Design Forums.  Please contact Design South East to find out which dates have availability and to arrange your Design Forum.  You can visit here https://designsoutheast.org/design-review/ or  email here .
