Recent studies have identified important challenges faced by planners who try to integrate healthy placemaking principles in their decisions. Although the barriers to building healthy places are now well-known (e.g. lack of funding; different requirements from developers; conflicting policy priorities) very few studies have given due attention to the solutions devised by planners to overcome these barriers and to create places that integrate healthy principles (that are so integral to people’s lives) into the built environment.
