This webinar forms part of our The Scottish Planner Live week and is brought to you by RTPI North East.
In recent years the connection between planning and health and wellbeing outcomes has been re-established. With a greater society level understanding and greater openness regarding mental illness and more people living with dementia the need to create places that cater for all is increasingly urgent. Whilst the connection between access to greenspace, active travel opportunities and physical health is well understood, the subtle but fundamental impact of the built environment on mental health requires a deeper understanding of the importance of place, distinctiveness and an environment that supports overall wellbeing.
