New garden communities programme announced 16/08/2018 Labelled as Development

The Government has launched a programme and prospectus, inviting bids to develop new garden towns and villages.


Councils across England and private developers, who have secured support from local authorities will be able to apply for a place on the programme and winning bidders will receive tailored advice and potential grant funding for help with staffing or environmental assessments; part of the planning process for new garden towns.


Government says garden communities can take the form of new villages, towns or cities and have the potential to deliver well designed homes at an increased scale, with projects ranging in size from 10,000 to 40,000 homes. A garden town is defined as a development of more than 10,000 homes. Garden villages are smaller settlements of between 1,500 and 10,000 homes.


Proposals are invited to be submitted by 9 November 2018, with successful garden community proposals announced in the New Year.
