What is a healthy built environment?
Healthy Built Environments (HBE) are planned and built communities with services and resources which health evidence demonstrates has a positive impact on people’s physical, mental and social health. In healthy built environments the physical surroundings in which we live, work and play are built in a way to make the healthy choice the easy choice for all residents. Physical attributes include our homes, communities, schools, workplaces, transportation systems, and parks/recreational and business areas.
