Ebbsfleet spans an area of over 1,000 hectares, within which the Corporation are championing several large-scale developments, including significant investment in infrastructure, utilities, highways, transportation, commercial space, housing, along with green and blue leisure space. It builds on the ethos and pioneering spirt of the original Garden Cities and New Towns, aiming to create a place founded on quality place-making, community building and sustainability, making long-term arrangements for the care of public spaces and assets.

The design forum is based on an open, constructive and discursive form of design review developed by EDC to ensure the service is valued by applicants. The forum will play an important role in furthering EDC’s commitment to delivering characterful and distinctive places that are informed by the local area’s remarkable surroundings.
The design forum is chaired by Professor Sadie Morgan, founding director of architecture practice dRMM.
