Securing Healthy Homes at the local level

Securing Healthy Homes at a local level COVER

This guide from the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) explores ways that local authorities and town and parish councils can help secure high quality homes that promote health and wellbeing.

Building on the TCPA’s Healthy Homes Principles, this technical guide has been written with local authorities in mind and explains in detail why and how these principles can be applied in local policy and practice. In particular, it covers:

  • The case for healthy homes
  • Implementation approaches
  • Managing homes and permitted development rights

The Housing LIN is also proud to be a signatory of the TCPA’s Healthy Homes Pledge.
