Contracts have been exchanged and plans approved by Keepmoat Homes for over 600 new homes in a partnership agreement worth £175m at Northfleet in Kent.

The former industrial site, which forms part of Ebbsfleet Garden City, will be fully redeveloped to provide a mix of homes including two and three storey traditional homes and modern apartments.

Keepmoat Homes is acquiring the land from the Homes and Communities Agency and is working in partnership with them to transform the site into a new neighbourhood.

Development would see the part-demolition of the WT Henley Building, an abandoned 19th century cableworks factory.

Roland Grant, regional managing director of Keepmoat Homes South said: “The Northfleet site is a landmark development for Keepmoat Homes and represents the largest and most significant award in the area, since we expanded the business in to London and the South East in 2014.

“This is an important milestone in ensuring this scheme becomes a reality, and the acquisition and development of Northfleet will meet the clear demand in the region. It is another positive step for Keepmoat Homes’ ambitious growth plans in the Thames Gateway.”

Keepmoat now plans to deliver up to 100 homes per year, while also creating employment and training opportunities in the local area.

The Northfleet development will provide homes for outright sale, for starter homes and for shared ownership and affordable rent.

There will also be some retail uses including a café and local shops and community facilities.
