Community

It isn't possible to drop a ready-made community into place. Communities develop of their own accord, they grow into their own entities: our responsibility is to see that everything is in place to make this possible.

This entails attractive, well-thought-out public spaces ideal for meeting and interaction; extensive facilities, from sports grounds and community centres to restaurants, bars and clubs, so that people can meet and mix; and support for the full range of people who contribute towards a successful community, not least with the creation of a choice of varied accommodation that includes a range and mix of affordable housing.

It also entails shaping the choice of activities in Ebbsfleet Valley through an open dialogue that encourages local people to engage effectively with all aspects of community life and offers them a stake in its success and development.
