Securing constructive collaboration and consensus for planning healthy developments

In 2017, TCPA created the Developers & Wellbeing project in a bid to explore how we can "encourage a consensus between the public and private sectors and wider stakeholders about the need to build and sustain high-quality, healthy places."

In response to that project, TCPA have produced this report with support from bodies such as NHS England and Public Health England, to help promote shared responsibility and collective action among council planning and public health teams, developers, government departments and their agencies, and wider stakeholders.

Demonstrated within this report is how early, effective communication between planning authorities and developers can improve health and wellbeing, support delivery of high quality health and care services and help the NHS to be sustainable for future generations.
