We were really excited to learn the news this week of the proposed healthy cities initiative by the NHS. The head of the NHS, Simon Stevens, announced plans to build hundreds of new streets that take lessons from theme parks to encourage more physical activity and play.

Fast food restaurants will be banned near schools and developers working on the new streets will have to consider how adventure areas could be integrated into communities as the Government builds 10 new ‘healthy towns’.

The initiative affecting 170,000 residents will also help the elderly, with proposals including dementia-friendly pavements with moving street signs. NHS England says it will bring together clinicians, designers and technology experts to re-imagine how health and care can be delivered across these new communities.

The NHS will consult developers building more than 76,000 homes across England. The sites picked to be part of the programme are in London, Oxford, Hampshire, Devon, Cheshire, Lancashire, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Kent.

We are really keen to see the outcome of these cities and think they will make a huge difference to communities.

It did also get us thinking – what better way to announce a new city then with a City range?!

As a constant hive of activity – A station with a clock tower, a grocery store, and a bus travelling through the town – the stories are never ending and bring city living to life!
