Ebbsfleet riverside regeneration obtained the green light. The development corporation has unanimously resolved to grant outline planning permission for new homes and jobs at Northfleet Embankment West, a key site within Ebbsfleet Garden City.
The proposals, promoted and master planned by David Lock Associates on behalf of Northfleet Property LLP, will breathe new life into 31 hectares of land at this former cement works site and reconnect the existing community to the River Thames.
A sustainable mix of uses is proposed including up to 532 homes, new and improved retail, education and community facilities, a new riverfront promenade and a Fastrack bus link. The proposals will also deliver significant new employment within an Enterprise Zone.
DLA Partner Phil Copsey stated, “this outcome represents a significant step forward for the delivery of new homes and jobs in Ebbsfleet Garden City and the regeneration of this high profile riverside site.”
