SPORTS ENGLAND | Active Design Guide

Active Design Guide provides essential guidance to help planners include sport when designing spaces

In partnership with Public Health England, we have built upon the original Active Design (2007) objectives and produced new guidance to ensure the places we live and work take sport into account when putting plans together.

The guidance links health, design and planning by creating the right environment for people to lead active lifestyles.

With this in mind, the 10 active design principles have been developed to inspire and inform the layout of cities, towns, villages, neighbourhoods, buildings, streets and open spaces, to promote sport and physical activity and active lifestyles.
