Ebbsfleet in 2035
Where London meets the Garden of England, on the banks of the River Thames, Ebbsfleet exploits its strategic location to continue the tradition of great placemaking in the UK; combining the best of urban and rural living and building on the ethos and pioneering spirit of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian planned communities to deliver a new benchmark for 21st century development including up to 15,000 high quality new homes.
Ebbsfleet is recognised as a place to do business, capitalising on its role as a European high speed rail hub 17 minutes from Central London and two hours from Paris, and benefiting from its proximity to Bluewater and junctions with the M25 motorway and the A2.
Up to 30,000 people will work in a green, modern environment around the International Station, which is becoming a magnet for economic growth and a destination of choice for investment and innovation.
Building on the unique landscapes inherited from its industrial legacy where gorges, bridges, tunnels and clefts connect former chalk quarries, Ebbsfleet promotes its identity as a healthy and dynamic place which is seen as a prime destination for recreation and leisure in Kent.
Ebbsfleet embraces its neighbouring communities and towns to create a new civic community connected by modern public transport systems, offering a diverse range of opportunities to live, work and play for people of all ages, backgrounds and incomes.
The delivery of well-designed and well-served neighbourhoods, workplaces, schools and town centres ensures that residents enjoy a high quality of life, with easy access to everything they need for healthy and successful lives.
