LAND Securities has sold more than 500 plots to Taylor Wimpey at Ebbsfleet Garden City, in Kent.
It was announced yesterday that Land Securities had exchanged contracts with Taylor Wimpey for the sale of 539 residential plots at Castle Hill.
Housebuilders Persimmon and Ward Homes are already on-site at Castle Hill, and the latest “raft of major deals” brings the total number of committed homes there to 1,500 in the Garden City.
“Today’s news represents a significant step forward for Ebbsfleet Garden City,”
said Tom Venner, development director at Land Securities.
Castle Hill is part of the Eastern Quarry development. It was also announced that Henley Camland, a residential infrastructure company, had purchased land at the Eastern Quarry.

“This landmark first acquisition is a real statement of our intent and paves the way for us to work towards our long-term goal of creating 20,000 housing plots.”
