Good planning can be positive for health and wellbeing. By considering key principles related to wider determinants of health places and spaces can be designed in a way that promotes healthy, active and sustainable communities.

Public Health England has looked at the impact of health in the following:

  • Neighbourhood design - such as walkability, connectivity
  • Natural and sustainable environments - such as air quality, access to the natural environment
  • Housing - such as quality, affordability, lifetime accommodation
  • Healthier food - such as access to healthy food, allotments and community gardens
  • Transport - such as walking and cycling routes, public transport, road safety

When we consider planning for health and wellbeing we consider two aspects:

  • How we can influence the design of the development; and
  • What health infrastructure is needed to support the development
