This HIA is the first phase and a rapid assessment which gives general/ broad indications of the likely positive and negative health impacts of the MediacityUK development. Measures for optimising poitive impacts and mitigating negative imacts are also recommended. Key positive health impacts are envisaged through job creation, community regeneration, the spread of health-enhancing information through the mass media, and increased opportunities for exposure to green space. Negative impacts are likely to be experience through relocation & adjustment distress for those moving into MediacityUk and several health & safety considerations. It is envisaged that the outline health impacts will be investigated more comprehensively through a longitudinal study that would provide a public health strand in monitoring and evaluating the development and contributions of MediacityUK to the health and wellbeing of the people connected with it.
