Health and other professionals in London Borough of Newham recognise that there are many challenges and opportunities for the promotion of health and the provision of health services with the construction of the Olympic park and new homes, retail outlets and business adjacent to the site. In particular, incorporating new residents into existing communities and existing health services with an expanded provision requires foresight and careful planning. This report aims to contribute to their thinking, planning and decision-making. Research findings from a range of sources including reviews of academic literature and case studies are used to propose some principles and practices to inform decision-making by health and other professions. Our proposals recommend a focus on developing and sustaining a healthy place rather than on ill-health and illness. We outline the reasons why we think that this perspective is preferable and how it may be achieved.
