Go-ahead secured for 205 more homes

Ebbsfleet Development Corporation granted planning permission for developer Redrow to build a further 205 homes in the garden city on Wednesday.

The third phase of Redrow’s Ebbsfleet Green development will see a selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes including 41 homes earmarked as 'affordable'.

A restaurant, pub and hotel are already open at Ebbsfleet Green and Redrow will soon build its south-east headquarters nearby.

David Banfield, planning director at Redrow South East, said: "It's fantastic to have secured consent for a further 205 new homes at Ebbsfleet Green as part of our overall vision to deliver a community of up to 950 homes.

"The wide range of homes and vital community infrastructure we are providing is appealing to young professionals, families and downsizers, creating a vibrant and diverse community.

Over 110 properties are now occupied and those who have moved in and are benefitting from everything the garden city has to offer including excellent connections to central London and the surrounding area."

Eventually, Ebbsfleet Green will provide up to 950 homes, plus a village centre, park, sports pitches and a primary school.
