MetadataShow full item record
Healthy planning and active living initiatives are considered effective in addressing rising rates of non-communicable diseases. Based on interviews and surveys with Australian advocates and practitioners, this PhD by publication explores the structural barriers and possible enablers for the implementation of urban planning that allows for healthy active living. Two key approaches which may assist this in the future, namely 'health by stealth' and framing health as central to local government functioning, are put forward.
