Garden Cities

The Garden City model demonstrates how the reinvestment of the land values created through the development process can enable the creation and long-term stewardship of places with social and environmental justice at their heart. This radical – and largely misunderstood – approach continues to be relevant to development at all scales. 

The TCPA has been campaigning for a new generation of Garden Cities based on modern Garden City Principles. This is underpinned by a programme of research exploring lessons from the past and present to understand how best to achieve these principles today.  

Alongside training and advice, we have produced a suite of practical guidance on delivering new places inspired by the Garden City Principles to support ambitious councils, communities and the private sector to create better places today.
