The Team is providing a comprehensive masterplanning services at Eastern Quarry for Land Securities. The site is part of the wider Ebbsfleet Valley, and a key sustainable mixed use community for the Thames Gateway Region. At 270 ha the scheme is thought to be one of Europe’s largest brownfield regeneration schemes and lies at the forefront of design practice in terms of both the vision for the scheme proposed and the unique, iterative design process informing and driving proposals forward. As designers we have worked in the project as far back as the inception and we are now engaged as coordinating masterplanners for the full scheme. We are evolving the project into a community centred around a public transport orientated layout split into three ‘villages’, each creating a local centre for the 6,250 proposed households. The East village is for 1500 units with mixed uses and primary school.
