Notes NOTES: Welwyn, the second garden city, was founded in the 1920s by Ebenezer Howard and it was a model for the post- World War II New Town planners. When the Development Corporation took over from the former Garden City Company in 1948, it appointed Louis de Soissons, who had been closely associated with the garden city development, as consultant architect-planner.
