THE HISTORY OF THE SITE
In 2014, the Government announced plans to create a new locally led Garden City at Ebbsfleet, providing up to 15,000 new homes based predominantly on brownfield land, or former quarries. Whitecliffe, 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. Henley Camland is managing the delivery of the infrastructure, while parcels of land are built out by individual housing developers
