Your views wanted on how housing affects health and well-being.
The Nottinghamshire Health and Wellbeing Board have commissioned work to demonstrate the main links between people’s housing and their health and well-being.
To this end a new chapter has been drafted to be included in a document called the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA), which provides a picture of the current and future health and well-being needs of the population in Nottinghamshire.
This new chapter begins with a brief description of the challenges that the housing market in Nottinghamshire presents. The chapter then discusses the main ways in which housing affects health and wellbeing in Nottinghamshire, describing the impact of:
An analysis of the impact of these issues concludes that some households are disproportionately affected by one or more of these factors, particularly older people and children, low income households (particularly those living in poverty), physically disabled households, and households living in rural areas.
The issues above were identified as priority ones following consultation in the county earlier in 2013. There are a number of other housing related issues that impact on health that have not been covered in depth in this chapter. These will need to be explored in the future, and include noise, accidents in the home, and spatial planning.
