Clifton Slipways

Gravesend, KENT


In July 2020, planning approval was granted for a contemporary mixed-use project on West Street in Gravesend.

It seeks to unlock a strategic brownfield site and is intended to act as a catalyst for further investment in the town centre.

The mixed-use development will include:

  • A £2.9 million restoration of Gravesend’s lost heritage asset, West Street Pier – a derelict Victorian pier, which has been in disrepair for half a century.
  • A start-up business hub at Pier Works, as well as 2,600 sq. m of new public realm and the creation of over 100 long-term jobs.
  • 227 apartments in two buildings, including a landmark residential tower overlooking the Thames.
  • New and improved flood defences to protect Gravesend.

"Clifton Slipways can be at the heart of the regeneration of Gravesend, providing significant investment of over £4.3m to be secured by s106 and making the best use of this derelict site to create a landmark development and more than half an acre of riverside public space that will reconnect the town and its people with the Thames."
