Reuniting health with planning handbook 2012

Download ‘Reuniting health with planning: healthier homes, healthier communities. How planning and public health practitioners can work together to implement health and planning reforms in England’, July 2012

Download resource: Section 4 Checklist of considerations against NPPF policies for engaging planning and public health colleagues 

Download resource: Examples of recent health-specific planning policies in Local Plans 

‘Reuniting health with planning: healthier homes, healthier communities’ (published in July 2012) handbook is the first of its kind since the Government set out a radical reform agenda across the planning and health sectors in England, including a requirement on planners to work with public health organisations, and a new public health responsibility for local authorities. It explains the relevance of these reforms for health and planning, and gives planners and public health practitioners ideas for how they can work together.

The handbook aims to keep the importance of integrated working, specifically between planning and health, on the agenda. Using case studies from around England, it explores how places are using this time of change to push forward their intention to integrate their work across both sectors.

The TCPA and Andrew Ross are very grateful to funders for the support of the project: Planning Exchange Foundation, NHS Bristol, First Ark Group, The Hyde Group, Luton Borough Council, Sandwell PCT, West Midlands Public Health Learning Network, and the Central Lincolnshire Joint Planning Unit.
