East Kent Growth Framework (March 2018)

East Kent is a significant economic sub-region, combining a distinctive and unique blend of international connectivity, proximity to London, world-class education institutions, incredible coastal assets, and a rapidly-expanding base of high-growth sectors.

Looking over the next 20 years, East Kent is expected to generate 36,500 new jobs and increase economic output by over 50% from current levels. There is even greater potential for increased economic output given the major opportunities to support new housing and employment growth that have been identified across a range of strategic well-connected sites.

The East Kent Growth Framework (EKGF) sets out an overarching strategic approach for identifying investment priorities to achieve long-term economic growth across East Kent between 2017 and 2027. KMEP is working collaboratively with the five East Kent districts of Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Shepway and Thanet, and with Kent County Council, to support the delivery of this framework.
