The TCPA is campaigning for a new generation of Garden Cities based on modern Garden City Principles. Our campaigns are underpinned by research exploring lessons from the past and present, including the New Towns programme.
The TCPA has a strong track record in research, policy formulation and political influence on climate adaptation and mitigation in the context of spatial planning.
Long-term stewardship is a holistic approach to ensuring places can be looked after in perpetuity. This approach is at the heart of the Garden City model and has relevance for the creation of new and renewed communities at all scales.
‘20-minute neighbourhoods’ are places where people can find most of what they need within a short walk or cycle, providing multiple health and climate benefits: we think they should be recommended in planning policy.
Areas of work
The way that places are planned, designed, maintained and regenerated can help or hinder work to tackle health inequalities, climate change, and economic resilience. The TCPA works, therefore, on a wide range of topics: find out more about the work we do by exploring the themes below.
