We are currently supporting the development of twenty-four locally-led garden cities, towns and villages with the potential for 220,000 new homes across England.

There are 10 locally-led garden cities, towns and communities at Ebbsfleet, Bicester, Didcot, Basingstoke, Otterpool Park in Kent, Aylesbury, Taunton, Harlow-Gilston, North Essex and North Northamptonshire.

We also announced our support for 14 Garden Villages in January 2017:

We intend to publish in the Spring, a prospectus inviting expressions of interest in ambitious, locally supported, proposals for high quality new garden communities at scale.
