Naturally Urban? Tackling Inequalities in Urban Greenspace and Wellbeing

Houlden, Victoria

This research aims to understand the relationship between greenspace, wellbeing and inequalities in England, using geographical and temporal weighted analyses of the UK Longitudinal Household Study and the Ordnance Survey Greenspace MasterMap. Results of pilot studies suggest a positive association between greenspace proximity and wellbeing, with strongest effects for more natural spaces. The results of the full analyses will provide a robust evidence base to inform future research and advance geospatial methods in the social sciences, while evidencing policies to address areas with the poorest greenspace provision and which have the potential to benefit most.
