The Healthy Homes Act campaign is calling for a new piece of legislation: a Healthy Homes Bill.
Join Civic Voice and the TCPA as we discuss the latest stages of TCPA's Healthy Homes Act campaign and ear how the introduction of Use Class E is impacting towns and cities across England.
According to research by the Place Alliance, during the first lockdown, a sixth of individuals were either uncomfortable or very uncomfortable in their homes. At a time when the nation was ordered to stay at home, it is shocking to think that, extrapolated across the UK , it would represent 10.7 million uncomfortable people.
That is why we’re proud to support the Town and Country Planning Association’s Healthy Homes Act campaign calling for a new piece of legislation: a Healthy Homes Bill.
By enshrining a series of ‘healthy homes principles’ into law, this bill would put individuals and communities’ health and wellbeing at the heart of government decision-making on planning and building control. Addressing issues such as accessibility, access to green space, noise and light pollution, size of windows to allow natural light, safety in relation to the risk of fire and secure, these principles, at an absolute minimum, define a healthy home and neighbourhood.
The call for a Healthy Homes Bill, led by TCPA, will help to reinforce that, which is why Civic Voice is pleased to support the call for these ten key principles to be adopted to drive forward the development of better homes and places.
