Ebbsfleet Garden City Trust

Ebbsfleet Garden City Trust (EGCT) has been set up to be the charitable legacy and stewardship organisation when Ebbsfleet Development Corporation (EDC) completes its work.

Over the next few years, there will be a considerable number of new parks and community buildings created in the Garden City to meet local community needs. It will be vital that these are all managed to ensure that they can be used by local residents and community groups, and are maintained to high standards for generations to come. That is the role of EGCT.

The proposed roles and responsibilities for EGCT are set out below:
