Approval for estate redevelopment

Plans have been approved to redevelop an industrial estate in Ebbsfleet Garden City that will bring up to 90 new jobs to the area.

Benrose Property had its designs approved by Ebbsfleet Development Corporation’s planning committee to demolish the Rod End Industrial Estate in Northfleet to replace it with modern buildings.

This will increase commercial floor space and when completed, the estate will have 19 new units.

A plan for 100 new homes on land that has not been used for a decade at Craylands Lane was also approved.

The land was previously occupied by a plant hire company, and Bellway Homes will now build 50 houses and 50 apartments, including 30 homes marked as affordable.

Ebbsfleet Garden City now has more than 1,300 completed homes, a new primary school and hotel.
