On a development of this scale, planning applications are submitted on a regular basis by Henley Camland or by the housing developers as they build their phases.  Details of the applications going through the planning process will be posted on this page and on Ebbsfleet Development Corporation's (EDC) planning portal here. EDC reviews all applications.

A New Centre for the Garden Village

At the heart of the emerging Alkerden village is a new market centre which will provide commercial, retail and community facilities as well as new homes.  

As we deliver our plans for the market centre, we want to ensure they continue to reflect the views of the local people.  

We held an initial consultation period in December 2020, where we gathered the thoughts of local stakeholders via an online survey.  Thank you to everyone who submitted their thoughts.  This feedback has been taken on board and will inform the emerging designs.

On Thursday 10 June 2021, we will hosting an online virtual consultation event from 5.30 pm until 7 pm.  It will be the opportunity to hear the latest about Alkerden Market Centre and get your questions answered by live panellists working on the project.

The engagement will be recorded and published, so if you are unable to attend you can watch via the link above at a later date.

Ashmere Phase 2 Plans – Have your say

This consultation information has been prepared to provide information and seek comments on Countryside Clarion (Eastern Quarry) LLP's detailed reserved matters proposals for Phase 2 of Ashmere in Eastern Quarry.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to undertake this consultation virtually. You will find enclosed details of the proposed scheme as well as plans and visual impressions.

We hope this exhibition gives you the opportunity to understand our proposal and provides an opportunity for your comments. Your feedback will help us shape the scheme proposals and inform a future application submission to Ebbsfleet Development Corporation (EDC). It is intended that the application will be formally submitted to EDC shortly.

Public Art Proposals – Have your say

Be part of the development of the incredible Artworks being designed for Whitecliffe's entrances.  Proposals by acclaimed visual artist Jessica Lloyd-Jones were chosen by the community in Sept 2020 to define the entrances to Whitecliffe.
