Supporting Health and Wellbeing through Planning

The next batch of events coming up in our 2019-20 Training Workshop Programme includes a brand new and innovative workshop based on recent experience of the NHS Healthy New Towns Programme. The workshop Supporting Health and Wellbeing through Planning, will be taking place in London on 26 September 2019 and will have relevance for both Planning Policy and Development Management Teams. It has been developed by one of our popular presenters, Tim Crawshaw, who was Built Environment Lead for the Darlington Healthy New Town Pilot from 2016 to 2018 and through this developed a series of Design Principles with the wider community and stakeholders.

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 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.
