Building successful new communities: Lessons from the TCPA’s New Communities Group

This report from TCPA (Town & Country Planning Association) focuses on their New Communities Group (NCG), established to help develop plans, provide political support and encourage a sharing of knowledge and best practice.

The paper is split into sections, documenting:

  • the key lessons from the NCG;
  • an example of the proactive collaboration between NCG members illustrated by the initial findings of a working group on the importance of project management within a local authority; and
  • the experiences of NCG members featuring ‘five-minute factsheets’, giving a brief overview of NCG members’ large-scale developments, experience and the lessons they have learned from the process so far.
