The Northfleet Harbour Restoration Trust is a group of a volunteers dedicated to researching the history of Northfleet Harbour and preserving it for the future. The Trust has worked tirelessly on the discovery and restoration of a number of historical sites within the harbour, and has recently received charitable status. They have proposed plans, estimated at £15 million, which include reflooring the harbour and establishing a number of new restaurants and shops to reanimate the area.

Adam fully supports the campaign and has visited the site on a number of occasions.
Unfortunately, the Trust were recently victims of vandalism, with their visitor centre damaged beyond repair. Thankfully this has not diminished their enthusiasm to restore this historic site. Read more at: http://www.kentonline.co.uk/gravesend/news/heritage-visitor-centre-smashed-by-25165/
In July 2018, The Northfleet Harbour Restoration Trust applied to Ebbsfleet Development Corporation to restore the harbour as part of the Northfleet Riverside development within Ebbsfleet Garden City. Ebbsfleet Development Corporation has since said it aims to enhance Northfleet Harbour as a focus for activity and regeneration in Northfleet Embankment West, as well as open up public access to the waterfront and provide an enhanced public realm.
