Description - Healthy Urban Planning by Hugh Barton

Healthy Urban Planning aims to refocus urban planners on the implications of their work for human health and well-being. One hundred years ago, the urban planning and public health movements were closely aligned, with pioneering thinkers and philanthropic employers looking to improve living conditions to produce increased health, well-being, quality of life and productivity of the citizens. Today there is a need to revisit these links, to make health objectives central to the urban planning process. If many of the problems faced in cities are to be resolved, improving health will be the fundamental goal of urban planners. Poor housing, poverty, stress, pollution, and lack of access to jobs, goods and services all impact upon health. This book provides practical advice on ways to integrate health and urban planning and will be essential reading for urban planners, developers, urban designers, transport planners, and those working in the fields of regeneration and renewal. It will also be of interest to those with an interest in sustainable development.
