We’re listening

Over the last 6 months we have been working with local residents and groups to find out about YOUR aspirations for Ebbsfleet Garden City.

We wanted to know what you thought about the future here and we asked ‘What is your Ideal Place?’

We held 25 events in 14 locations, received over 2,300 direct contributions, ideas or survey responses and our online material was seen 250,000 times.

We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone that engaged with us over this period, whether through attending events and workshops, completing an online survey or sending us a postcard.

The key themes that came through from all of the events and surveys were-

People want to grow food and have more access to outdoor spaces dedicated to growing and eating

People want to be creative

People want to be active

People want to socialise in new

community spaces

People want to be connected to nature, to relax and to play

You also told us 

You want to be involved in their community

You want to know what is happening in Ebbsfleet Garden City

You want to learn and connect with each other

How will we respond?

We are already working on some of your ideas as a result of what you said.

You told us you want  space to come together and Ebbsfleet Development Corporation is now looking at opportunities to deliver temporary spaces which will allow local groups and individuals to turn their ideas into reality.

We are committed to continuing this conversation with you.

See our videos on this page for further information on your responses to the studies.
