The new Chelsea
SWANSCOMBE has been cited as the Chelsea of the future in debates sparked by an exhibition looking into regeneration in the Thames Gateway.
David Parry, who heads the Thames Gateway development team for Cluttons - a surveyor company serving the south east - believes improved infrastructure will have huge impact on towns in Kent.
He said: "Swanscombe has a lot of run-down terraces and closed shops. It needs prettying up but it has potential as a Chelsea for the future."
Ebbsfleet station has been cited as the key to Swanscombe's rise in the property ranks.
The debates on the region have been part of New London Architecture's Turning The Tide; Regenerating London's Thames Gateway exhibition.
