In the latest edition of Planning in London, Michael Chang (Town and Country Planning Association), Liz Green (WHIASU) and Jenny Dunwoody (Arup) provided an overview of opportunities to integrate health considerations in a range of assessments in the process. These include the Strategic Environmental Assessment, Environmental Impact Assessment and the Health Impact Assessment. This article is set in the context of the forthcoming London Plan, a statutory strategic planning document for whole of London, which will see Boroughs adopt the policy of using HIAs in the planning applications process. Many of the issues and themes set out in the article will also be relevant and of interest to practitioners in Wales.
