How can Planners Support Healthier Spaces?
The ‘Planning for Healthy Food Environments’ online symposium offered the opportunity to hear from inspiring case studies that contribute towards planning for a good food environment. The event provoked thought about how to improve the food environment when building new developments and was aimed at planners and other relevant stakeholders from the Pennine districts and beyond, who are interested in the intersection between planning and health. Discussions and case studies will be compiled and published following the event. Speakers at the event worked in the field of food mapping, the good food economy, community growing & farming and planning. To stay up to date with HPHF, follow @HealthierPlace on Twitter.
