Bellway London will build an additional 130 homes as part of a riverside regeneration project in Northfleet after securing approval from Ebbsfleet Development Corporation.
Harbour Village is a landmark redevelopment which will provide a link between existing homes and the River Thames. It is being built on the former Northfleet Cement Works at Northfleet Embankment West, which has capacity for more than 500 homes in total.
Bellway London is already building the first phase of 121 homes and is close to opening Chimney View Park, the first public open space at Harbour Village.
On Wednesday (26/07/23) Ebbsfleet Development Corporation’s planning committee approved detailed plans for a further 130 homes in phase two of the development, which forms part of Ebbsfleet Garden City.
The homes will range from two-bedroom houses to four-bedroom houses.
There will be 40 affordable homes in phase two, which will be made available to local people for low-cost rent or shared ownership.
The character of an existing flint wall will be retained through a flint frontage to the homes along College Road. Flint will also be also embedded into the ground in front of properties. The proposals will incorporate and retain historic features relating to the site’s rich history as a cement works, which were uncovered when construction began on site.
Tom Sherriff, Managing Director for Bellway London, said: “Harbour Village is already transforming this disused site in Northfleet into an attractive and welcoming new community.
“We welcome the decision to grant planning consent for the second phase of the development.
“We have worked closely throughout the planning process with Ebbsfleet Development Corporation to design an inclusive and sustainable development. It includes ecological enhancements, sustainable drainage, new parkland, a heritage park, sports facilities, and electric vehicle charging points.
“Harbour Village will deliver benefits to the whole community while making a large section of the riverside accessible to local residents.”
Bellway London recently handed over the first homes at Harbour Village to its first new residents and a showhome will open this weekend (29/07/23). One and two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses are being delivered within the first phase.
The wider development will create new employment spaces, a local centre, restaurants, bars, shops and a community centre. There will also be a new expansive area of parkland, to be known as Bevan’s Park.
