How can local governments link planning principles to health outcomes?

This guide is designed to support local governments, including Indigenous communities, with assessing features of their community’s built environment. Ten validated healthy built environment assessment tools have been compiled and are presented in this guide. These assessment tools, when paired with community engagement efforts and health data, will support local governments in identifying the strengths and gaps in their community’s built environment and further understand how those gaps might negatively impact health.
