Action alert: EDC Consultation

East and West docks

Northfleet Harbour’s Restoration is at a critical juncture and there is a very real danger that the boat could quite literally be missed. Ebbsfleet Development Corporation have taken over planning responsibility for the area and have been charged with delivering housing numbers as part of the Ebbsfleet Garden City Scheme. The EDC are currently doing a master planning consultation exercise for the harbour area and have missed off boating access to the harbour despite all the benefits it could offer, they did say however that if there was a public response to their survey asking for historic ships, apprenticeships, marina facilities and an all-round great facility they may consider including it. Northfleet’s Vision is as per the picture with all its benefits. The EDC survey invite is as follows, we need as many people as possible to respond so if you know anyone also keen on seeing the harbour’s restoration including please get them to respond. “We want you to help shape the future of Northfleet by taking part in our survey online here We’re looking at creating a new riverside quarter but ideas and thoughts are needed.”

Please respond it’ll take less than a minute, the Thames already has lost too much boating access and we already have miles of housing on the riverfront preventing boating access.
