Recently there has been a refocus on health in planning and how the built environment can encourage better health outcomes. NHS England’s Healthy New Towns Programmes is looking at how the planning and design of communities could be done in 10 demonstrator sites across England, as well as rethinking how health and care services can be delivered. Associated with the programme was an international design competition to visualise how this could be done, which Citiesmode submitted the winning entry.
Philip Liu at Citiesmode talks about some of the ideas from the bid. Andre Pinto from Public Health England explains some of the challenges of delivering health and care services and what solutions that the built environment could provide. They are both joined by Jamie McKie from Dentons Planning and Public Law team.
