As a new programme of Garden Cities and New Towns looks increasingly likely, it is important to learn the lessons – good and bad – from what has been done before. The TCPA has launched 'An Introduction to the UK's New Towns and Garden Cities'. This report is the first in a two-stage project looking at those lessons, providing an overview of the Garden City and New Towns Story, and using the latest data from the New Towns themselves, offering up a snapshot of the state of these communities today. The publication includes a main report and a “five minute” fact sheet on each of the New Towns.
The 'New Towns & Garden Cities: Lessons for Tomorrow' project is sponsored by David Lock Associates, the Lady Margaret Patterson Osborn Trust and the Planning Exchange Foundation.
