Case StudiesHealthPlanning

The London Healthy Urban Development Unit is a team of town planners working to maximise the opportunities for aligning the health and planning agendas. The unit engages planners and health professionals to integrate health considerations into planning policy decisions and promote healthy urban development.

HUDU has developed tools and guidance to assess the health impacts of new development and works with health organisations and planning authorities to maximise the opportunities that integrating health and planning can bring.

In 2014, the unit published ‘Planning Contributions for Health’ Case Study Examples, a collection of 17 case studies where S106 planning contributions have been used to support improved health outcomes and provide new health infrastructure through planning.
