The Future Food Beacon’s sponsorship of the Nottingham Good Food Festival 2019 led to further, lasting tangible outputs. Nottingham Good Food Partnership (NGFP) used the momentum from the festival to conduct long term public engagement, which led to them collaborating with Nottingham City Council (NCC) on the Wellbeing Design Guide.
This Guide embeds the concepts of health, wellbeing and sustainability into all planning decisions by NCC. It is not only powerful for the planning department but also something NGFP shares and comments on regularly. It is becoming an influential document beyond the city.
