Revitalisation and activation of communities through a health and wellbeing lens
A supportive built environment positively impacts health and wellbeing. Urban renewal processes provide the mechanisms to rejuvenate the built environment as Greater Adelaide moves towards an increased focus on planned infill development. Compact development in existing areas supports access to existing transport connections, services and facilities and employment centres, as well as creating new and different types of homes in established areas, to reflect the different housing requirements and preferences of contemporary family types. As more people look to live and work in urban and inner urban environments, it is increasingly important to redevelop existing urban spaces as attractive and safe neighbourhoods that promote health and wellbeing.
Through new ways of delivering urban revitalisation, Renewal SA helps to create innovative, accessible and connected places where people want to live, work, play and invest in South Australia.
The partnership expresses the commitment of Renewal SA and the Department for Health and Ageing to work collaboratively to support the role of urban renewal in enhancing the health and wellbeing of South Australian communities.
