On the 02 May 2019 The Town and Country Planning Association called for the Government to adopt ground breaking legislation to make sure new housing boosts health standards for residents. Archadia are committed to these sustainable principles of design. The report says Planners have a key role to play in health issues and identifies three important areas where Planners can influence
1. Design Considerations relating to physical and mental well being – initiatives to encourage walking, cycling, green spaces, social interaction and employment
2. Health Protection Measures – consider things to mitigate negative impacts such as air, noise, water and ground pollution
3. Health Infrastructure – including the provision of doctors’ surgeries, clinics and pharmacies tailored to local needs.
