A new England-wide survey of Directors of Public Health commissioned by pteg has found strong evidence that public health and transport teams are working more closely together since public health teams moved into top-tier local authorities in April 2013.
Conducted by public health and transport expert Dr Adrian Davis, the survey and follow-up case studies sought to explore the extent of collaboration since the move as well as identify examples of good practice and any barriers to joint working. The findings have been published in a new report, ‘A Healthy Relationship: Public health and transport collaboration in local government.’
The key findings of the report are summarised in the infographic below. You can download ‘A Healthy Relationship: Public health and transport collaboration in local government’ here
Our new report, ‘Delivering the future: New approaches to urban freight’, highlights the essential role of urban freight in ensuring the effective functioning of the UK economy and presents a fresh vision designed to safeguard this role, as well as protect the environment and quality of life for communities.
It could provide a starting point for a broader, nationwide strategy on freight. Our infographic summarises the key findings and recommendations. You can download the full ‘Delivering the future’ report here.
