New towns--Great Britain; New towns--United States; Sociology, Urban; Democracy
New Towns have received attention as significant fields for study of urban systems and urban problems. Their early development in Great Britain and more recent development in the United States is a subject of public and private interest, yet little attention has been directed to their potential for improving the urban democratic process as well as dealing with housing, transportation, employment, planning, recreation, and other urban systems. This paper examines the potential of New Towns with reference to British experiences in improving urban democratic systems.
