Health and Wellbeing
Locally, planning and health functions within the County have recognised the need for the two to work together more closely to better support the health and wellbeing of our residents.
Local partners, including Northamptonshire County Council Public Health, Northamptonshire Clinical Commissioning Groups and the Local Planning Authorities have jointly funded a Health & Planning Programme Manager role. Stephen Marks was appointed to the role earlier this year to support the links between planning teams across the county and the various organisations within the local health sector.
