Attention has most recently been given to widening health inequalities, particularly in light of the current global health pandemic.
The RTPI research paper ‘Enabling healthy placemaking’, is calling for the greater use of Health Impact Assessment in planning applications as an important step towards the implementation of healthy place-making outcomes in planning decisions.
To dig deeper, join Mark Cope at the RTPI’s free webinar on the 28 September.
