Ebbsfleet Development Corporation’s Board took a tour of the Garden City to see the latest progress being made.
They met with developers and saw sites around the Garden City including:
- Ebbsfleet Green where Redrow are starting on 180 new homes
- Eastern Quarry where Circle Housing is building 52 homes for affordable rent and 73 for shared ownership
- and where Persimmon have started on site for 170 homes
- Springhead Park where Countryside has returned after four years and will complete the first of its next phase of 123 homes in early 2017
They also met with Leigh Academies Trust which is building a new primary school in Eastern Quarry which will open open in September next year.
Last week, the new housing minister Gavin Barwell MP also visited the Garden City and said: “This Government is determined to build the homes people need and to help them achieve their ambition of home ownership, and I am confident we can deliver many of them in Ebbsfleet.
“Ebbsleet Garden City has great potential with its high speed transport links and I was pleased to see the progress made so far.”
