This will bring the total it will build there to 799.

Ian Piper, chief executive of Ebbsfleet Development Corporation (EDC), said: "While this latest phase from Countryside complements the existing Springhead Park area it also represents a use of materials and detail which will provide a contemporary and good quality range of two, three and four-bedroom homes for Ebbsfleet Garden City."

EDC, which is overseeing the regeneration of the Garden City, is also building a new bridge which will link the area directly to Ebbsfleet International, set to open in 2020. The 87m-long structure will have access for all vehicles across two lanes as well as pedestrian footpaths and a cycle path, and will reduce travel times on foot between Springhead Park and the station from 25 minutes to eight minutes.
