This website focuses on legal areas that are new, interesting, often not fully understood, or, not recognised at all as having a potential impact on health in a local area. It highlights areas of law that have the potential to change local environments and encourage more active lifestyles and better diets, and to improve the health of a community. This website is not a checklist of health measures for local communities to adopt; instead this site explains the operation of laws that could enable, or place limits on, local government and community activity that affects the healthiness of a place. Case studies are an important practical example of how others have used the regulatory environment to promote physical activity or healthy eating in their areas- shaping healthier places to live in.
