CALL FOR HEALTHY TOWNS

  • Comment

The government's environment and sustainability adviser, Jonathon Porritt, has called for a 'seismic change' in attitudes to designing healthy towns and villages.Speaking at the launch of a new TCPA publication, Shaping Neighbourhoods , Porritt called for an end to 'pedestrian-unfriendly' environments and the closing of local amenities. 'It is ironic that government money is pouring into the health service to combat illness, 'he said, 'while at the same time little is done to promote healthy places where we live.

We are still exacerbating the problems and effectively pouring good money after bad.'
