Across England, we are currently supporting twenty-four locally-led garden communities, to be exemplars of high quality, good design and best practice. This support has included the provision of £31 million of capacity funding to the garden towns and villages and nearly £300 million of infrastructure funding to Ebbsfleet Garden City, hands on expertise, support and delivery advice from experts within Homes England; and, cross-government brokerage to resolve barriers to delivery. Our support has helped foster ambition to accelerate the pace of delivery, with over 12,500 new homes now started.
