Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has today set out a plan to make Bicester a garden city.

The plans include building 13,000 new homes in the Oxfordshire town which will be funded by a new scheme to help build more affordable homes each year.

The plans form part of the National Infrastructure Plan announced by Danny today (December 2) which includes a £2.3bn investment in flood defences and £15bn of road improvements.

Commenting on the new garden city in Bicester, Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said:

"The Liberal Democrats have long argued that garden cities are an idea whose time has come again.

"I am delighted that Bicester can now be confirmed as a pioneer in what I hope will be another wave of garden cities in this country.

"This is a significant victory for the approach championed by the Coalition Government - where local areas put their hand up and say we want to become a garden city or garden town."
