Healthy places

Developing long-term collaborative relationships between planning and public health in local areas.

This project, funded by The Health Foundation, will develop long term collaborative relationships between planning and public health in local areas, exploring the different mechanisms for embedding health into the planning process.

Aims

  • To advocate for public health to be an important consideration in planning at local and national levels.
  • To strengthen partnership working across the planning and public health sectors.
  • To facilitate skill development and knowledge exchange between the planning and public health sectors.
  • To promote and support enhanced relationships between Directors of Place and Directors of Public Health through sharing evidence and good practice, and engaging in discussion and debate.

What we have done so far

Next steps

  • As part of our What Good Looks Like project, we are developing a What Good Local Planning for Health Looks Like, with the assistance of Michael Chang (OHID).
  • Following next month’s workshop, we will set up and coordinate a Planning and Health Collaborative Group made up of Directors of Public Health and planning professionals to facilitate closer working.
