From New Towns to Growth Areas: Learning from the Past

This paper draws out key lessons from the New Towns experience which should be considered in relation to the Growth Areas.

There are critical lessons for the Growth Areas that can be drawn from the successes and failures of previous housing growth policies. Although the New Towns programme was developed and delivered in a very different political and policy climate, many of the issues that the Government, the New Towns Development Corporations and local authorities grappled with are similar to those that will need to be addressed in the Growth Areas.
