The TCPA’s ‘Reuniting health with planning’ initiative has helped local authorities get the right policies in place to create healthy places. Through this, we have learned that local authorities want to gain a better understanding of the development industry. Within the relatively short timescale and scale of the Project, it aims to provide developers with an open and constructive forum to discuss to how to deliver high-quality housing and regeneration, alongside meeting policy requirements for a range of place-making objectives and meeting the viability test. It aims to enable a positive approach between Local Authorities and Developers to delivering healthy developments.

  • NHS England and Public Health England
