TCPA Spring conference: Time to make garden cities a reality

The TCPA Spring Conference, on the theme of 'time to make garden cities a reality', builds upon the Association's highly successful Garden Cities campaign with the aim of keeping up the momentum on the Garden Cities and Suburbs agenda in the build up to the 2015 general election and providing practical solutions to delivery.

The TCPA’s Spring Conference, ‘Time to Make Garden Cities a Reality’ will consider how we can overcome the practical, economic and political barriers to delivering new large-scale communities built to Garden City standards. It will explore issues such as whether the existing New Towns legislation needs updating; how land value increases can be used to fund up-front infrastructure investment; how we can ensure that high quality new developments remain attractive and successful places for generations to come.

Final speaker line-up:

  • Roberta Blackman-Woods MP, Shadow Minister for Civil Society in the Cabinet Office team
  • Jane Hamilton, former Chief Operating Officer, Milton Keynes Partnership
  • Gerry Hughes, National Head of Planning, Development & Regeneration, GVA
  • Euan Hall, Chief Executive of the Land Trust
  • Nigel Ingram, Director of Development and Asset Management, Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust
