Garden City Guide 8: Creating Health-Promoting Environments


This guide outlines tools and mechanisms for creating or regenerating places to improve public health. Written as part of the TCPA’s ‘Garden Cities Standards for the 21st Century’ series, though applicable to any new or existing community, it brings together research on how to create healthy, active environments using planning and design. It includes best practice guidance on movement and access, open space, food growing, buildings, neighbourhood spaces and local economy.
