Land Securities has been granted full planning consent for a 2.6m sq ft mixed use development at Ebbsfleet International train station.

The development, Station Quarter North, will deliver 2m sq ft of offices, 603,000 sq ft of shops, hotels and leisure facilities and 930 new homes.

The planning consent, granted by Dartford Borough Council, is the latest step in Land Securities’ 17m sq ft redevelopment of more than 1,000 acres in Ebbsfleet Valley in the Thames Gateway area.

Mixed uses

The development will see mixed-use buildings developed around a central piazza. There will also be a road running from Ebbsfleet International to the nearby Blue Lake, which will be lined with shops, hotels, offices and homes.

Land Securities has also consulted the public on recreational facilities to be provided on land between the Eurostar station and Swanscombe.

Land Securities has also submitted a planning application for land to the east of the station called Northfleet Rise. It is currently waiting for determination from Gravesend borough council.
