Nick Clegg says the next generation of garden cities should "draw inspiration" from the past - using new towns Milton Keynes and Stevenage as examples.
MILTON KEYNES, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
In the 1960s the Government looked beyond London to relieve housing congestion. Milton Keynes was designated as one of its new towns because of its equal distance between cities such as London, Birmingham and Oxford.
Stevenage is located between the two garden cities of Letchworth and Welwyn. It's population saw a significant rise after in the 1950s and 60s after the government designated it a new town.
