Areas of work

The way that places are planned, designed, maintained and regenerated can help or hinder work to tackle health inequalities, climate change, and economic resilience. The TCPA works, therefore, on a wide range of topics: find out more about the work we do by exploring the themes below.

  • Climate Change

    Reducing carbon emissions and building resilience to the impacts of climate change must be a top priority for planning across the UK.

  • Community Participation and Social Justice

    In a fair and democratic society, communities should be able to participate in decision-making, to give them control over their lives and ensure good outcomes for all.

  • Garden Cities and New Towns

    The Garden City model provides a practical approach to delivering healthy, inclusive and climate resilient places today.

  • Healthy Place-making

    Homes and neighbourhoods have a profound impact on people’s health and wellbeing so it is vital that we plan places that support good health for everyone.

  • Parks and Green Infrastructure

    Green infrastructure provides many benefits for the environment, health and well-being and is an essential component of any neighbourhood.
