Practical guidance, checklists and case-studies are categorised into nine key design features that will assist planners, urban designers and related professionals to design a built environment that enables people to be healthy and active in their community. Other potential users of the resource include professionals from health, community development and sport and recreation who wish to advocate for and promote health and wellbeing across a range of projects.
