Impact case study – Supporting local authorities to make planning decisions that promote better health and reduce inequalities: hot food takeaways

Our food environment is described as the physical, economic, policy and socio-cultural conditions that influence the food we eat. In England, local authorities have responsibility for public health. They also play a key role in influencing what our food environments look like, as they make decisions which regulate where takeaways can trade. Our researchers have developed detailed understanding of the role of the planning system in improving the food environment through regulation of new takeaways.
