Green Space

A guide has been produced by Greenspace Scotland which provides support for those wishing to conduct a health impact assessment of greenspace; it also considers the role of greenspace in improving health. On a similar note, the Mayor of London and CABE Space have developed a report entitled 'Open Space Strategies - best practice guidance'.

For those interested in urban planning and public space design, there are a number of case studies on the CABE website as well as publications, teaching resources, events and news.

A research paper by Dr Mitchell published in The Lancet recently has found that physical activity in green spaces might be instrumental in reducing socio-economic health inequalities.
