Property developers, Landmarque Property in partnership with Ebbsfleet United, are to submit planning permission for a mammoth waterfront development close to Northfleet Harbour.

Developers believe the plans, which they state have the new stadium at their heart, will create a thriving community and 3000 new jobs.

Plans include an 8000-seat stadium for Ebbsfleet, a 200-bed hotel, 3,500 homes, associated children’s play areas and 180,000 square foot of office space to include incubator spaces for start-ups. A retail centre, consisting of 225,000 sq ft of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes, is also included as part of the plans.

A series of public/community consultations will be held prior to any planning submission to Gravesham Borough Council.

National League South outfit Ebbsfleet United seek a switch from the Kuflink Stadium to a purpose-built facility. To do so they will partner with property developers to transform the Stonebridge Road industrial area into a thriving community.

Their chosen partners for the development Irish firm, Landmarque Property, are eager to proceed the plans for what has been named, Northfleet Harbourside.

Fleet chief executive Damian Irvine said the development would help secure the club’s long-term future while also helping to reshape the local area.

Mr Irvine said: “It will allow us to really create a destination here for visitors but also for locals for employment and to open up the Harbour which is a great historic part of Northfleet.”

Northfleet Harbourside will host public consultation exercises at the Kuflink Stadium on Monday, July 18, Wednesday, July 20 and again on Thursday, July 21, 4pm-8pm.
