Joint Report of:Director of Public Health and Director of City Development Title:Planning for Health – involving the health sector in urban planning in Bristol Ward:Citywide Officer Presenting Report:Stephen Hewitt, Specialist Professional Planner (Healthy Living/Health Improvement) Contact Telephone Number: RECOMMENDATION 1. The appended protocol be agreed and signed 2. The protocol be reviewed in 12 months time and amended in the light of the reorganisation of the NHS Summary The report highlights the relationship between health and spatial planning and the case for making health expertise more readily available to City Development. It proposes the formalising and streamlining the process of embedding health advice into the development management decision-making process, based on research carried out in summer 2010. The significant issues in the report are: Agreeing a protocol between Bristol City Council and NHS Bristol (the primary care trust) for bringing health expertise into the development management decision-making process. The research carried out in summer 2010 highlighted a range of issues. These can be best worked through by putting the procedure into operation. The reorganisation of the NHS will mean revising the protocol in the future.
