LONDON, Sept. 22.—London is to have a new gat den city suburb, to be the first of a series of such satellites to suck away London’s overpopulation. This garden city will house 40,-000 persons, be independent and self-supporting so far as food is concerned, and be an actuality in some four years. The project is backed by the government. Uultimately it is hoped to have a ring of such cities around London, say, within 2 5 minutes’ train service. Building operations will begin next year. Some 4,000 acres will be required for the new community, 2,500 of which will be devoted to intensive agriculture within the suburb’s limits. Small industries will be fostered. The whole idea is to prevent London from growing larger. london today is top-heavy*, from whatever angel the matter is viewed— transportation, food supply, housing, congestion, etc. The idea is to build up farm cities which will allow the worker to live under more healthful conditions, doing away with The transit problem altogether. The future development of the city will be strictly limited. All the streets in this model city frill be lined with, trees and grass plotted, like they are in po many American cities. That idea has never been given a chance here. There will be no rows of houses, nor blocks of houses. The town planner will be in all his glory. There will be a business center, a social center, a municipal center, and most of the low-rent cottages will each have a plot Of ground to help out the breadwinner so that he’ll never want to go back to smoky London town. The city will have its own electric light, water and power plant. Care will be taken to prevent the reso-j city retrograding into an unhealth-Okla-I fill, purely industrial place.
