Who is it for?
The HCG can be used to assess and improve an urban plan at city or neighbourhood scale, helping the planner understand the urban determinants they would need to address to improve environmental, physical, and mental health.
Citizens & residents
The easy-to-understand outputs of the HCG tool and thorough explanations make it an ideal tool to be used in workshops with local residents, guiding citizen involvement in the planning process.
Local government departments
With urban determinants spanning housing, greening, transport and more, the HCG is a useful tool for bringing different government departments together and facilitating collaborative working.
Innovation & development projects
Do you have an innovative project designed to improve the urban landscape? The HCG can be used to assess the impact of nature-based solutions, active mobility interventions, and greening initiatives on citizen health.
