Mental Health and Town Planning: Building in Resilience


The quality of the built environment is a determining factor for mental health, with housing quality, noise, pollution levels, quality of green space, access to services and even ‘beauty’ all playing a part. Town planning decisions can therefore have a direct impact on mental health.

This RTPI Learn module summarises expert advice and outlines good practice through case studies. It focuses on the situation in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. However, the principles of good practice apply wherever you work in the world.
