Garden Communities

Question for Department for Communities and Local Government

UIN 61388, tabled on 24 January 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, whether garden village proposals which do not meet the criteria in the report Locally-Led Garden Villages, Towns and Cities, published by his Department in March 2016, will not receive either formally or informally any aspect of the Government support package set out in paragraphs 31 to 44 of that document.

We are keen that local areas continue to pursue their garden village ambitions. The Homes and Communites Agency has offered a conversation with local authorities whose garden village proposals were not selected to establish how they might be supported to progress their ambitions.

We want local areas to be ambitious and want to encourage well developed locally led proposals that will provide high quality, transformational housing growth.
