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. The new market centre will be delivered by a number of stakeholders, including Henley Investments.

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 around 500 homes, new open spaces, alongside being home to a supermarket, workspace and connections 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 a new community building, library and sports facilities.

We want to hear your views!

Following on from our initial consultation surveys in December 2020, Henley Investments is at an exciting stage in the development of Whitecliffe (formerly Eastern Quarry) and currently looking to further develop ideas for the look and feel of the new high street and supermarket which is due to open in late 2023.

We hosted a virtual public consultation event on Thursday 10 June which provided an opportunity to hear about the proposals first hand. The engagement was recorded, so if you were unable to attend you can watch the recording via the Your Alkerden page of this website.

Over the coming days and weeks, we will be further updating the website with information as to the emerging proposals.
