Reserved matters consent for the first local centre building in Ebbsfleet Garden City was approved unanimously by the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation planning committee last week.

The scheme, submitted and negotiated by DLA on behalf of Newcrest, includes approximately 1,000m2 of retail, including a convenience store and four smaller premises for non-food retail, small businesses, a café and take away to provide services to local residents.  10 town houses fronting the Fastrack public transport route and 46 apartments are also incorporated into the contemporary scheme, commended at committee for its design quality and exceedance of national space standards.  Newcrest plan to commence the development as soon as possible and deliver much needed services to the residents of the emerging Garden City.
