Index of 250 New Town Locations

We aim to identify locations for 50 New Towns every year, which is nearly a rate of one every week. We want to complete a list of 250 locations in five years. If distributed according to the existing population that will mean 215 in England, 22 in Scotland, and 13 in Wales.
