Garden City Myth-buster

This resource is part of a collection called Campaigning for new Garden Cities.

The Garden City is a radical but practical approach to creating and renewing places which enable people, and the wider natural environment, to thrive.  

Over a century of misuse of the term makes this confusion understandable but is blinding us to a far more impressive and urgent reality: that the Garden City idea is one of the strongest tools we have available to enable a healthy, affordable and zero-carbon future.  

To tackle the many misconceptions surrounding the term ‘Garden City’, the TCPA published this ‘Myth-buster’ pamphlet in April 2023 as part of the Tomorrow 125 project.
