Eversheds Comment: UK call for Garden Cities faces complex hurdles

  • United Kingdom

    28-08-2014

    Commenting on the call on the UK government to build at least 40 new garden cities, or continue to face a shortfall in housing supply, Stuart Andrews, head of planning at law firm Eversheds, says:

    "The joy of the Garden Cities concept is that we can all idly speculate on the visionary concept of creating a new utopia, without necessarily getting to grips with where they will go, what infrastructure will be needed and what complex of land interests will have to be secured. The hard facts are that these projects will be intensely difficult to deliver and that all follows on from you finding a community that is willing to accept a new settlement of some 10,000 to 50,000 new homes."
