The New Garden City Alliance is campaigning on the principles for designing a new wave of UK Garden Cities, Towns and Villages that update the original Arts & Crafts schemes in the early 20th century. For more information see the NGCA NGCA web site. Our aim is to work in partnership with existing bodies to establish standards for Garden Cities that Britain can be proud of, and to establish exemplars for an environmentally sustainable society that promotes the wellbeing of all citizens. See my blog page in the blog tab for discussions on what a 21stC Garden City could be like.
