Place & Public Health - Working for Essex
We love ideas, learning from
each other, new ways of thinking.

Welcome to Place & Public Health

“Place & Public Health is here to make a long lasting and positive impact on the outcomes of residents, communities and businesses across Essex. We now have a real opportunity to be greater than the sum of our parts and develop a holistic approach to places that ensures Essex remains the place to live, work and enjoy – now and in the future.

Our ambition is not only to continue to provide great services but also to improve the outcomes for the people of Essex. We know that the life chances of residents, and the performance of businesses, are influenced by a wide range of factors, including the health and wellbeing of the individual, the efficiency of transport networks, the quality of the natural environment and the provision of skills – to name a few. P&PH reflects this wide range of influences and recognises that four key ambitions must be realised in order to make Essex a prosperous and inclusive place to live and work.

We welcome those with the talent to deliver on our ambitions.”

  2. Sustainable Travel
  3. Sustainable Environment
  4. Sustainable Communities.
