Brief description City planning directly and indirectly affects the health of residents. For example, ‘affordable’ housing on the urban fringe typically has poor access to public transport, shops and services. This increases motor vehicle dependency and time spent driving which increases levels of physical inactivity, sedentariness, obesity, social isolation and air pollution. This research focuses on how to build communities that promote health and wellbeing in residents.
