Health and Wellbeing Impact Checklist

The checklist available from the Downloads box on the right of this page has been developed as part of the refresh of the EPOA Icon for pdf Health Impact Assessment guidelines [1.29MB] that were originally developed in 2008. This should be used to help inform local planning authorities of the questions to ask developers on the impact of the proposed development on health and wellbeing.

The Essex Design Guide continues to attract national and international recognition from leading practitioners in the urban design and planning fields. Many residential developments designed using the guidance have won awards.
