New communities inspired by the Garden City Principles provide a unique opportunity to create places which enable people to live in healthy, happy communities that reduce their impact on the environment, while enhancing social and economic wellbeing. This includes embedding sustainable transport systems from the outset to avoid car-based development and create exemplar new communities.

The guide, published with support from Vectos and The Lady Margaret Paterson Osborn Trust, explores a set of key principles to enable new garden communities to embrace their visionary mindset and deliver exceptional placesas well as establishing guidance on funding and delivery, for local authorities and others to achieve these aims.
