Sustainable, well-designed and vibrant communities are the future for Tewkesbury, as the borough council wins its bid for the area to become a new Garden Town. The government announced on Monday, 25 March that Tewkesbury and its surrounding area is one of only a handful of locations to be awarded Garden Town status, which will see it receive around three quarters of a million pounds in initial funding to deliver long-term sustainable development plans. Tewkesbury Borough Council submitted its bid to the government to become a Garden Town in November last year, explaining that the Tewkesbury area is the perfect place to be a part of the scheme due to its key location surrounding J9 of the M5 and the critical role it plays in the growth of Gloucestershire.
