Award for Healthy New Town partnership

The team behind the Healthy New Town programme in Whitehill & Bordon has won an award for its innovative partnership work.


The project brought together many organisations, authorities and community groups to work together for the first time.


Last week its success was recognised by a Planning Award, a national scheme run by Planning Magazine. Judges commended the programme as a “very good example of partnership working, which is delivering long-term benefits for the community”.


In March 2016 Whitehill & Bordon was one of ten towns across the country selected by NHS England to take part in the Healthy New Towns programme to show how towns can be designed to help residents live healthy, active and independent lifestyles.


More than 20 organisations, including developers, NHS managers, planners, public health professionals, schools, third-sector organisations and community groups, have joined forces to help realise this vision.


The Planning Awards celebrate excellence in planning and placemaking, including planning-related activities such as urban design, economic development and regeneration.


Cllr Ferris Cowper said: “This is a fantastic award and reflects the breadth and variety of the partnerships we have forged to improve the lives of Whitehill & Bordon residents.”
