Using HIA in local government
Drawing on work carried out with local authorities in the North East of England, this chapter demonstrates how health impact assessment (HIA) can be brought into the mainstream of local policy-making and planning activities. It considers the relationship between HIA and other appraisal and assessment requirements, such as sustainability impact assessment and rural proofing. It explores how local government can use HIA to help them achieve a broad range of corporate objectives. It considers some of the practical issues that need to be addressed if HIA is to become embedded in local authority business. Consideration is given to problems associated with trying to involve the public in the assessment process.
