Children, young people and the built environment


This inquiry is looking at how better planning and building and urban design in England could enhance the health and well-being of children and young people, while also benefitting the population as a whole. It will look at how children and young people can use outside public spaces and move around their neighbourhoods: how they can be active and visibly part of their communities – whether it is their street, housing development, estate, town centre, village, public square or park. And it will look at what role the Government may have in making the built environment work in the best way possible.
