The links between good planning, design and placemaking and improved health and wellbeing outcomes for citizens is increasingly being recognised. Recent research by Public Health England points to cost effective interventions in the built and natural environment that can be promoted through planning policy and decision making. Alongside this, the current NHS Healthy New Towns Programme is demonstrating the value of good planning, small but effective design interventions, and the value of partnership working. This workshop draws on current and emerging best practice to assist planning professionals both develop effective policy suites and make better decisions that support health and wellbeing. It will also focus on ensuring that healthcare provision is built into new developments and planned for in partnership with CCGs and other service providers.
