Details

This prospectus sets out how we can support local areas who want to create new garden villages, towns and cities. It offers tailored government support to local areas with ambitious and innovative proposals to deliver 1,500 homes and above.

It is divided into 2 parts covering expressions of interest for different scales of development.

The first part of the prospectus invites expressions of interest by 31 July 2016 for new ‘garden villages’ of between 1,500 to 10,000 homes. The additional document provides further guidance on the type of information that the expression of interest should include where possible.

The second part of the prospectus invites expressions of interest on a rolling basis in new garden towns and cities of more than 10,000 homes.
