We are currently supporting the development of ten new locally led garden communities of more than 10,000 homes at Ebbsfleet, Bicester, Didcot, Basingstoke, Otterpool Park in Kent, Aylesbury, Taunton, Harlow & Gilston, North Essex and North Northamptonshire.

We do not have a pre-set view of how many more garden communities of more than 10,000 homes we may support. We are encouraging local areas to be ambitious and want to see proposals that will provide high quality, transformational housing growth.
