What and Where?

A new centre for your garden village.

At the heart of the emerging Alkerden village is a new market centre which will provide commercial, retail and community facilities as well as new homes.

This phase of the development will provide the market centre as part of the development of Whitecliffe. The construction of Alkerden Market Centre will kickstart the provision of at least 400 homes, alongside being home to a supermarket, studio and workspace and connection to Ebbsfleet International Station. This will be a key civic space in the heart of the new development – a place to meet, shop, socialise, work and interact.

Partnerships are being developed to deliver a number of shops and cafes that reflect the emerging retail environment.

Alongside the market centre, Alkerden Village will also ultimately be home to both a primary and secondary education campus as well as library and sports facilities.
