In 1909, the Bristol Garden Suburb Limited was set up to implement the ideas Ebenezer Howard popularised in To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform, first published in 1898. Garden-City principles inspired promising developments at Shirehampton, Sea Mills and Keynsham chocolate factory, but were diluted in the construction of Bristol’s interwar housing estates at Knowle West, Bedminster, Hillfields, Southmead, Horfield, Speedwell and St Annes. Today it’s timely to revisit Howard’s ideas in the light of several topics of green chatter – transition towns, peak oil and Gordon Brown’s intention to promote the construction of eco-towns.
