Update information

This guideline is an update of NICE guideline PH8 (published January 2008) and will replace it.

New recommendations have been added on strategies, policies and plans to increase physical activity in the local environment (1.1.1 to 1.1.3); active travel (1.2.1 to 1.2.4 and 1.2.6 to 1.2.9); public open spaces (1.3.1 to 1.3.3). NICE has deleted some recommendations from the 2008 guideline because the evidence has been reviewed and the recommendations have been updated.

Recommendations are marked as [2018] if the recommendation is new or the evidence has been reviewed.

Recommendations are marked as [2008] if the evidence has not been reviewed since the original guideline.

Changes to wording of recommendations from the 2008 guideline for clarification only (no change to meaning)
