Healthy New Towns programme was launched in 2015 to explore how the development of new places could provide an opportunity to create healthier and connected communities with integrated and high-quality health services. The programme worked with 10 demonstrator sites chosen in March 2016 from over 100 applicants to help do this. These developments ranged from 900 to 15,000 homes at different stages of the process, with diverse health needs, levels of income and inequalities. Putting Health into Place is based on the learning from these innovative sites.
The programme has benefited from the strong partnership working across the NHS and with our programme partners The King’s Fund, Public Health England, the Town and Country Planning Association and The Young Foundation. The programme was also supported by a steering group, a network of developers and a cross government network who have all played a key role in shaping these documents.
