This prospectus sets out how we can support local areas who want to create new garden communities, and the key qualities that we expect proposals to demonstrate.

It offers tailored government assistance to deliver garden communities of at least 1,500 homes, with priority given to those of over 10,000 homes.

Proposals should be submitted via MHCLG’s DELTA portal by 13 November 2018. Please contact to receive instructions on how to access DELTA.
