Garden Cities - Be A Pioneer - A call to Action

Garden Cities - Be A Pioneer - A call to Action

James Gross is a graduate of the course (DIP LA 1999) and a Director at Barton Willmore in the master-planning team in the Reading office. He authored their shortlisted entry for the Wolfson Economics Prize on Garden Cities, the only landscape architect to lead a finalist submission.

Their submission includes proposals for four garden city types, including the 'greening' of existing new towns, to deliver up to 40 new garden cities across the UK. Each garden city would deliver 40-50,000 homes built over the next 25 years, as well as 40-50,000 jobs. A Royal Commission, and Garden City Mayors heading up local Garden City Commissions, would be appointed to champion garden cities and find specific locations for development in the broad regions mapped in the submission. 35% of new homes would be affordable housing for those on low incomes.
