Many planning policies now require a report showing that the Health Impact of a scheme has been considered. A Health Impact Assessment details the capacity of doctor surgeries and dentists and examines daylight, sunlight and overheating within homes. It also looks at outdoor space and play areas and reviews the provision of public transport (cycling and safe pedestrian routes). Our reports fully support the planning application process.
We should all be concerned with healthy living. These assessments identify any gaps in the design of a scheme that can be improved to ensure that it fully meets residents needs for the future.
