The launch of a Thames Estuary growth plan, to boost productivity, attract and retain skilled workers and capitalise on major infrastructure works was today welcomed by Ebbsfleet Garden City bosses.

The ‘Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission’ was unveiled at an event at the Queen Elizabeth II Park, and promises to put in place a vision which will “unleash growth for decades to come” – see here 

Chairman of the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation board, Michael Cassidy CBE, said: “I welcome this new focus on the Thames estuary of which Ebbsfleet Garden City clearly plays a big part.

“Momentum is really gathering in the Garden City with 600 starts on site estimated over the next year, approval given to a £12million new bridge to link residents to Ebbsfleet International Station and a new primary school set to open in September 2017.

“Ebbsfleet remains a strong place to invest in with significant growth potential and we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with the commission in the future.”
