A public art survey, which is running online throughout February, allows people to share their stories and contribute to the visual identity of the public art being delivered at the new community.

Liz said: "As well as looking into the cultural context and history of the area, I want to hear from the community about what is important to them in order to capture Ebbsfleet Green's unique identity.

"The website is my way of creating a space to meet and talk during lockdown.

"Residents and locals of any age can use the February survey to share their stories and tell me what is special about their neighbourhood.

"People can share as little or as much as they want.

"There are no wrong answers, whatever they think and feel is right and will be really helpful.

"Or they can just get in touch and we will talk – I would love to hear from as many people as possible, everyone is welcome."

Planning director for Redrow South East, David Banfield, said: "It is fantastic to have Liz working with us on the creative identity of Ebbsfleet Green.

"If you live in the area, we encourage you to get involved with the art survey and contribute to defining the area's cultural future."

The website will also be a place to share news and information about future engagement opportunities.
