NHS boss to announce proposals for new ‘healthy cities’ designed to encourage play and physical activity

The head of the NHS, Simon Stevens, is set to announce plans to build hundred of new streets that take lessons from theme parks to encourage more physical activity and play. Fast food restaurants will be banned near schools and developers working on the new streets will have to consider how adventure areas could be integrated into communities as the Government builds 10 new ‘healthy towns’. The initiative affecting 170,000 residents will also help the elderly, with proposals including dementia-friendly pavements with moving street signs. NHS England says it will bring together clinicians, designers and technology experts to re-imagine how health and care can be delivered across these new communities. The NHS will consult developers building more than 76,000 homes across England. The sites picked to be part of the programme are in London, Oxford, Hampshire, Devon, Cheshire, Lancashire, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Kent. [read more]
