Why invest in Ebbsfleet?
The biggest development opportunity in the country is Ebbsfleet Garden City in north Kent. Within 1026ha, some 15,000 homes are envisaged, along with 5.5 million sq ft of commercial space and two million sq ft of retail, leisure and community facilities.
AECOM has been appointed to create a community-led masterplan for the new city by Ebbsfleet Development Corporation. The consultancy and project management organisation, which led the masterplanning for the 2012 Olympic Park, has already held consultations with local residents and is now due to deliver its outline plan for further consultation.
This will set out the overall vision for the new garden city and the strategy to deliver it, including essential enabling infrastructure and a cohesive, co-ordinating framework to support the disparate ongoing and future development.
