• DLA led a team preparing the Kent Thames-side Vision, subsequently described as a unique exercise in British town planning.
  • The Vision foresaw the development of over 30,000 new homes and the provision of over 50,000 new jobs largely on brownfield land, based on mixed use, public transport-orientated development.
  • Now recognised as an established part of national planning policy and the cornerstone of the move towards more sustainable development.
  • As part of the work the identification of and subsequent construction of Ebbsfleet’s International and Domestic Passenger Station continues to offer a key opportunity to bring new investment and activity into the area and benefit the existing community.
  • Subsequent work at Northfleet Embankment focused around an east-west high quality public transport/pedestrian/cycle link integrating with Ebbsfleet and Gravesend Town Centre.
  • Masterplanning strategy comprised two sustainable new neighbourhoods, set around a core of retained riverside industry, and integrated with existing communities.
