Support the vision for
Ebbsfleet

Ebbsfleet Development Corporation was first announced in 2015 to bring forward the delivery of Ebbsfleet Garden City, regenerating previously used, brownfield land in Ebbsfleet.

There are many ways that the Ebbsfleet Garden City vision can be supported and championed. Whether you are a resident, prospective business, local organisation looking for support, or a company looking to tap into local talent, Ebbsfleet Development Corporation is here to help. Find out more about how you can get involved below.

The Vision

Championed by the Government and Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, Ebbsfleet brings the traditional garden city principles up to date. It provides modern liveability with quality design, sustainable connections, nature, greenery, health, and wellbeing. Diverse communities are emerging almost organically, brimming with energy and ideas, and breathing life into the modern garden city. Local residents are also empowered, through the Ebbsfleet Garden City Trust, to protect and steer the long-term future of the area for generations to come.

Ebbsfleet will be a haven for the environment where green habitats, wet woodlands, chalk streams and urban greenery are nurtured for wildlife and old quarries are reinvented for nature and recreation. Alongside this, as an original NHS Healthy Town, a health and wellbeing hub is proposed, complemented by new cycleways and footpaths to Bluewater and beyond to support the health and wellbeing of all.

These new connections and facilities will also help to bring together Ebbsfleet’s new residents with those from the existing neighbourhoods of Swanscombe, Northfleet, Greenhithe, Stone, Dartford and Gravesend.

Environment & Sustainability

The vision for Ebbsfleet is to deliver a sustainable development that is fit for the future, where everyone can make sustainable choices and live healthy lives.

Over 40% of the Ebbsfleet development area will be dedicated to green and blue space, affording residents and visitors space to enjoy nature and all it has to offer. Whilst innovation and high-quality design are at the heart of the growing community, so is biodiversity and sustainability, ensuring residents, visitors and the Corporation balance development ambitions with commitment to protect and conserve the future of Ebbsfleet for generations to come.

As Ebbsfleet Development Corporation continues to deliver one of the fastest growing development sites in the UK, must also work to ensure that Ebbsfleet Garden City is there for future generations, including preparing for changing in climate, enhancing and protecting the wildlife, and ensuring the built environment caters to the needs of the future. It also means playing our part in minimising climate impact. Find out below how Ebbsfleet Development Corporation is working towards a net zero future.

Social value in Ebbsfleet

Many billions of pounds will be spent on designing and building the new homes, shops, offices and community facilities of Ebbsfleet’s regeneration over the coming years. Many different parties will be involved in delivering that investment, including the Corporation itself, house builders, construction companies and many other suppliers.

Ebbsfleet’s regeneration will be many years in the making, at least until 2035, but we want the benefits of all the required investment now and in the future to be felt by local people and businesses for many years beyond the construction itself. This is known as Social Value.

To ensure a co-ordinated approach across all of the many organisations delivering Ebbsfleet, there is a common set of social value measures and record of the benefits being created. The Corporation uses the Social Value Portal and the National TOMs (Themes, Outcomes and Measures) for measuring and recording this impact.
