Healthy New Town - Whyndyke Garden Village
In March 2016, following a rigorous selection process, NHS England announced ten housing developments they would be working with to shape the health of communities, and to rethink how health and care services can be delivered.
The programme offers a golden opportunity to radically rethink how we live and takes an ambitious look at improving health through the built environment.
In the NHS Five Year Forward View a clear commitment was made to dramatically improve population health and integrate health and care services as new places are built and take shape.
The 92-hectare site includes the development of 1400 homes, a primary school, healthy community facilities, a health facility and employment land. It has been designated as a Healthy New Town by NHS England as a blueprint for communities of the future.
