“90% of our health is dictated by where we live and only 10% by the intervention of the NHS.
The Health and Wellbeing Board prioritises the involvement of the consideration of “Health in Spatial Planning “ to maximise population health and wellbeing and embed health into the planning process.
This has NEVER been more important to Bramcote when we consider the 500 houses to be built on the Coventry Lane Playing Fields. We must demand Active Design.
Health and Housing are synonymous , you cannot have one without the other. Let’s build to improve health and reduce air pollution .
Good access to green space means residents are 24% more likely to be active. Poor environments contribute to poor health and health inequalities.
Bramcote demands the Local Planning Department adheres to the Health and Spatial Planning Criteria and involves health at all stages .
Involvement at Preplanning , Outline Planning , Full Planning and health involvement is published with the full planning response.
If Bramcote is to shoulder over 10% of the total housing requirements of the Borough despite occupying less than 6% of the area and having only 6.64% of the population , Wellbeing must be at the forefront of the Coventry Lane development . Health and Social Infrastructures must be considered .
A new school with Community access and state of the art leisure Facilities for a growing population assumed.
The residents of Bramcote deserve no less”.
