Development[ edit ] Before the Garden City: Old Letchworth[ edit ] Letchworth was one of the ancient parishes of Hertfordshire. The parish church of St Mary the Virgin was built in the 12th or 13th Century. Letchworth was a relatively small parish, having a population in of 67, rising to 96 by A Peaceful Path to Real Reform later republished as Garden Cities of To-morrow , in which he advocated the construction of a new kind of town, summed up in his Three Magnets diagram as combining the advantages of cities and the countryside while eliminating their disadvantages.
Industry would be kept separate from residential areas—such zoning was a new idea at the time—and trees and open spaces would prevail everywhere. His ideas were mocked in the press but struck a chord with many, especially members of the Arts and Crafts movement and the Quakers. According to the book the term “Garden City” derived from the image of a city being situated within a belt of open countryside which would contribute significantly to food production for the population , and not, as is commonly cited, to a principle that every house in the city should have a garden.
The concept outlined in the book is not simply one of urban planning, but also included a system of community management. For example, the Garden City project would be financed through a system that Howard called “Rate-Rent”, which combined financing for community services rates with a return for those who had invested in the development of the City rent. The book also advocated a rudimentary form of competitive tendering, whereby the municipality would purchase services, such as water, fuel, waste disposal, etc.
These systems were never fully implemented, in Letchworth, Welwyn or their numerous imitators. The Spirella Building A competition was held to find a town design which could translate Howard’s ideas into reality, and September the company “First Garden City Ltd. In keeping with the ideals only one tree was felled during the entire initial construction phase of the town, and an area devoted to agriculture surrounding the town was included in the plan — the first ” Green Belt “.
