Health Impact Assessments: What Do You Need to Know?

In our latest CPD, Greengage will help project managers and planners to understand the relevance of Health Impact Assessments (HIAs) within the built environment, and the process of how and why they are used. 

Health & wellbeing is fast rising to the top of the built environment agenda. In the last year, health & wellbeing has been a core subject at many industry leading events. Most recently it forms one of three main subject areas of the upcoming Green Sky Thinking Week 2016. As such, an increasing number of industry professionals are beginning to recognise the importance of the topic, and understand the ways in which the built environment can impact upon the health and wellbeing of building users and the wider communities in which they reside. This has led to an increased visibility of health and wellbeing in policy requirements and objectives, making the topic a principal consideration in planning applications and project management.

Our Latest CPD

Our experienced team will explore the drivers behind the rise of the health & wellbeing topic, and demonstrate how HIAs can be used as a tool to demonstrate compliance with policy, support planning applications, and highlight the health & wellbeing benefits of development.

We will explore the key subject areas that form HIAs, and explain the role that planners and project managers have in undertaking them. Attendees will gain an understanding of the necessary processes through relevant case studies and first-hand experience from our team.

Be prepared for this emerging subject in your applications and keep abreast of the health & wellbeing topic. This CPD can be undertaken at your place of work, at a time that best suits your team to ensure maximum value.
