In this Lecture, public health specialist Lucy Saunders will introduce the Healthy Streets Approach to Urban Planning. This is a framework for putting human health and quality of life at the centre of decision making around transport and public realm planning and management. It has been adopted by London as the framework for the 25 year Mayor’s Transport Strategy and is being embedded in the systems and processes of the strategic transport authority, Transport for London.
