Contracts exchanged for next phase of housing at Castle Hill Ebbsfleet

17 March 2015

Persimmon Homes South East has exchanged contracts with Land Securities for the sale of 170 residential plots to form part of the new Ebbsfleet Garden City.

Construction on the 4.2 hectare plot marks the second phase of development at Castle Hill, one of three planned modern villages in the 269 hectare Eastern Quarry development which forms part of the wider Ebbsfleet Garden City.

Lance Taylor, Development Director for the South East at Persimmon Homes, said: “We’re delighted to be building 170 homes in such a prime location as Castle Hill.

Like Land Securities, we’re committed to the highest standards of design and construction, so we look forward to working together to deliver the next phase in the exciting development of Ebbsfleet Garden City.”

Land Securities will install primary infrastructure (roads and utilities) on the site, with work due to commence immediately.

Persimmon Homes South East will begin building in the Autumn providing two, three and four-bedroom family homes to the high design standards demanded by a Garden City development.

Land Securities is also working with Kent County Council to develop a two-form intake primary school at Castle Hill to serve local families.

Colette O’Shea, Managing Director, London Portfolio at Land Securities, said: “We are very pleased to welcome another quality house builder to Ebbsfleet in Persimmon. We now have real momentum at Castle Hill; people looking for a place to live are recognising it as a high quality, sustainable community with great transport links, and there ’s interest in the site from other housebuilders. The political backing given to Garden Cities by all the political parties has undoubtedly led to this increased interest and pace of development.”
