The London Healthy Urban Development Unit (HUDU) helps to create healthy sustainable communities and ensure that new developments are planned with health in mind.

HUDU works with local, London wide and national organisations on behalf of the NHS. We provide specialist expertise and advice to enable the health and planning sectors to work together effectively to improve the health and wellbeing of London’s diverse communities.

More than 42,000 new homes will need to be built each year in London to accommodate the projected growth in population. This creates enormous opportunities to improve services and facilities to meet changing healthcare needs.
