Why invest in Ebbsfleet?
Healthy new town
In February 2016, it was announced that Ebbsfleet Garden City, where 15,000 homes are planned, is to become one of the country’s 10 beneficiaries of the healthy new towns project.
The scheme will focus on areas in the country where a substantial number of homes are being built, introducing a range of measures to help people live healthier lives.
According to planning blueprints for Ebbsfleet Garden City, each section of the development will have its own primary school in a central location, within walking distance of all housing; within the Eastern Quarry three primary schools are planned. One preventative measure to tackle rising levels of obesity in children is a ban on fast-food outlets near all schools throughout the area, achievable in the new developments of the garden city but not so in established towns and cities.
The healthy new towns scheme also aims to offer support to people who have dementia, as well as encouraging community cohesion by designing “safe and appealing” green spaces and introducing cycle paths.
