Communities invited to bid for projects

Ebbsfleet Development Corporation plans to set up a fund for community projects, with groups and individuals invited to bid for money to help set up projects such as summer fairs and farmersí markets.

The corporation will ask the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) for around £500,000 for the project, chairman Michael Cassidy CBE told Ebbsfleet Garden City magazine. 

The scheme will also be rolled out across Gravesham and Dartford.
