It’s business as usual – that’s the message from house builders in the Garden City following last week’s referendum result.

A meeting between Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, land owners and those building in the Garden City heard that developers are on track to start 600 new homes over the next 12 months.

Developers said there would still be enormous demand for homes in the area and the referendum had not resulted in any downturn in interest from home buyers in the south east.

The meeting heard:

  • Circle Housing will start on site on Monday  for 125 homes in Castle Hill
  • Countryside is continuing to progress at Springhead Park with the first of  its 123 new homes completed in early 2017
  • Redrow’s work on 180 homes at Ebbsfleet Green continues at pace, with two show homes nearing completion and plans for a new pub and hotel expected to be submitted soon. By the end of the year Redrow expects to have three different products on sale

EDC’s Interim Chief Executive, Paul Spooner, said: “I was delighted to hear from our partners that it is business as usual in the Garden City and they are all still on course with their plans.

“There is a real confidence here that there will be 600 new homes started in the Garden City in the next year and that 300 of those will be completed.

“Like us, house builders have full confidence that the real growth that has now started in the Garden City will continue.

“Demand for housing is not going to change and Ebbsfleet remains in a very strong position as a good location for investors.”
