Healthy Placemaking

Increasing the diverse range of physical assets, networks, facilities and places that can get people active

Healthy placemaking represents one of the key areas of focus for Active Black Country and it's partners.  Over the next 2 years, Active Black Country will:

  1. Incorporate active design principles into new infrastructure developments through the Black Country Plan, Garden City developments and Black Country proposition pipeline.
  2. Build knowledge of community based need and solutions to get people active that can influence the places and spaces to be active and support connectivity.
  3. Develop a suite of supporting strategies that evidence and understand the broad range of publicly owned assets to increase activity levels.
