Ebbsfleet Development Corporation

The study has been developed by Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and Proctor and Matthews Architects.

The Ebbsfleet Development Corporation was established in April 2015 as an arms’ length body of the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). The EDC’s role is to enable the delivery of the Ebbsfleet Garden City – first UK New Town designated in the 21st Century, and the first Garden City for 100 years.

The EDC are committed to continuing the tradition of great place-making in the UK; combining the best of urban and rural living and building on the ethos and pioneering spirit of early Garden Cities and New Towns.

EDC is the plan-determining authority for the Ebbsfleet area. Plan-making responsibilities remain with Dartford Borough Council, Gravesham Borough Council and Kent County Council.
