evidence base
Evidence base

Mental health density and lack of an ‘escape’, design (including high rise and deck access dwellings), physical distress (including vandalism and poor maintenance), housing quality (eg damp), fear of crime, and neighbourhood noise.

Obesity and cardio-vascular disease walking and cycling ways connect homes with schools, workplaces and shops; improving accessibility to open and green spaces and sport and leisure facilities; and removing environmental barriers to enable residents in deprived areas to become physically active

Respiratory diseases modify both the total volume of traffic and congestion of traffic at specific locations. This may have a preventative effect on cardio- respiratory disease, saving the NHS an estimated £1,400 to £2,500 per admission to hospital avoided.

Excess winter (cold) and summer (heat) related deaths ensure that measures are incorporated into the layout of a development to reduce the heat island effect and to improve insulation.

Injuries Spatial planners can introduce area-wide traffic calming measures that reduce child injury rates, and address inequalities. ‘Home zones’ can support new or existing neighbourhoods become accessible for community use eg play, walking and cycling. Road bypasses decrease accident rates, but the evidence that new major urban roads can impact on local road networks and accidents is less strong. Injuries and falls in the home are a common and significant risk for older people, and falls cause 4% of injury deaths in older age groups. Simple behavioural and environmental adaptations can reduce the risk of trips and falls in the home, but the evidence of effects of wider environmental adaptation in the home is weak.
