The settlements, all in England, are between 1,500 and 10,000 homes, delivering more than 48,000 homes in total, the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) said yesterday.
The announcement follows on from a call in March 2016 for applications from local planning authorities interested in developing garden villages. The garden village programme extends the garden towns programme, which already has seven projects underway.
The DCLG also revealed support yesterday for three more new garden towns in Aylesbury, Taunton and Harlow & Gilston – alongside a further £1.4 million of funding to support their delivery – to deliver nearly 200,000 new homes. Garden towns are developments of more than 10,000 homes.
Housing and planning minister Gavin Barwell said: "Locally-led garden towns and villages have enormous potential to deliver the homes that communities need.
"New communities not only deliver homes, they also bring new jobs and facilities and a big boost to local economies. These places combined could provide almost 200,000 homes."
The Government indicated it may run a further call for expressions of interest in 2017 for other places with proposals for new garden villages.
