LDP health impact assessment

The LDP HIA will be an overarching high level assessment that will look into the impacts both positive and negative that will result from the implementation of the LDP.

The Welsh Government (WG) has committed itself to improving the health of the nation in part through the levers of a revised and updated planning system (Better Health, Better Wales, 1998). In particular, it has begun promoting Health Impact Assessment (HIA), underpinned by the World Health Organization broad definition of health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." (WHO, 19461) In Wales, HIA's have been utilised to look at the wider social determinants of health, lifestyle, community, economic and environmental factors. A HIA then assesses potential positive and detrimental impacts on these areas, informing the policy/plan producer and enabling mitigation or reconsideration of options and aims to minimise adverse health impacts or maximise health benefits
