Key stages in planning policy and development management processes where environmental sustainability considerations could feed in are highlighted in the Tables 1 and 2 below.
A similar table is provided for health professionals highlighting health considerations, see ‘Key stages in planning where health can input‘.
It may also be useful to organise some training events for selected planning and public health staff to raise awareness of the Kent Environment Strategy and the benefits of particular actions for improved health outcomes. This might also provide an opportunity to consider new approaches to collaborative working.
It may be useful to develop a formal protocol between environmental sustainability and planners to clarify who will input on what, when and how.
