The Development

The Vision

Whitecliffe, the Site formally known as Eastern Quarry, is the largest development site in Ebbsfleet Garden City. The 667-acre Site is owned by Eastern Quarry Ltd a wholly owned subsidiary of Henley Camland who acquired it from its previous owners Landsec in March 2018. Whitecliffe lies 19 miles to the South East of Central London, in a key location, bounded as it is to the west by the Bluewater Shopping Centre and to the east by Ebbsfleet International Train Station. The latter provides links within 17 minutes via HS1 to central London and in the other direction via Eurostar to Paris Brussels and Amsterdam. These outstanding transport links are completed by the A2(M) which runs along the Northern boundary and the M25 which only 3 miles away. One of the largest Development Sites in the UK, Whitecliffe has Planning Permission for 6,250 new homes plus Schools, Community Facilities, Offices, Local Retail and Commercial units all set out in a superb unique landscape framework of cliffs lakes and green spaces of all kind.  Development of the Site started in earnest in 2013 and there are already approaching 500 homes completed in the first village. The Development is formed of 3 separate but complementary villages each of which is separated and surrounded by landscaping – being Castle Hill, Alkerden and Ashmere.


The Vision

Ashmere is an exciting addition to the Ebbsfleet Garden City. Renowned developer, Countryside, in partnership with Clarion Housing Group will be crafting around 1,500 new homes here, all perfectly designed for modern living, whatever your stage of life and your lifestyle requirements.

Current plans include the creation of a new Primary School and a mix of shops, bars and restaurants where residents can relax and enjoy life.

These new homes will be delivered through 11 phases of development and will all benefit from the excellent travel connections that make this location so convenient.


The Vision

Alkerden forms the centre piece to the wider development, providing a hub of brand new community facilities as well as approximately 1,500 new homes. The Village is defined by the Education Campus, which will include a new 8FE Secondary School, 2FE Primary School, Lifelong Learning Centre and Community Library Sports Hall, Pitches and a mixed-use centre with new shops and cafes and further community facilities including a doctor’s surgery, community and gym. Alkerden will sit immediately alongside the Major Urban Park, a brand-new extensive area of public realm incorporating childrens play, public squares, sports facilities, walking and cycling routes and an impressive look-out point with views back to the London skyline.
