Active space planners

Across the county planners and communities are working together to design new places that help us to be physically active. This could be walking to the shops, cycling to work or playing outside. Small changes to the way that we design new houses and workplaces can make a big difference.


Read Sport England’s guides to Active Design and learn how we can adapt spaces to encourage activity in our everyday lives.
