2021-2025 Corporate Plan
“Strongly supported by Government as the flagship of the Garden Communities programme, our role is clear – to deliver a vibrant new community that includes high-quality and affordable housing that meets the needs of local people, alongside a thriving local economy with a wide range of new jobs. We have an exciting opportunity to build much needed beautiful new homes in the right places – regenerating brownfield and previously used industrial land to create a vibrant and sustainable community, whilst respecting the beauty of our open spaces and natural environment. By 2025 we will have delivered more than 5,000 homes – representing a third of the eventual total, and plans will be in place for up to 150,000 sq.m of future employment floorspace across three sites.”
-Simon Dudley, Chair of Ebbsfleet Development Corporation Board

Ebbsfleet Development Corporation’s approach is to act as the catalyst for home building by helping to bring landowners and developers together, and through powers to determine planning applications as the Local Planning Authority for the area. Following an extensive process of studying the infrastructure needs of the area and presenting business cases to Government, the Corporation invests in infrastructure to support the development and regeneration of Ebbsfleet Garden City, including private infrastructure (electricity water, ) as well as public infrastructure (roads, schools etc). The Corporation also has capacity for direct development of land for a greater variety of homes and jobs in situations where the market may not deliver these.
