Our health is linked to our environment in many ways and recent guidance recognises the important role that spatial planning can have on health and wellbeing.

Nepali Needs Assessment 2010

This report was created because of the growth of the Nepali community within Rushmoor due to changes in the law which allowed ex Gurkhas to settle in the UK. Rushmoor has a military base in Aldershot and this military connection has meant that significant migration has occurred to this area. The population of Rushmoor in the 2011 Census was 93,800, with 6,131 people (6.5%) identifying themselves as Nepalese (includes Gurkha). Despite the significant size of this community little was known about its specific health needs – hence the requirement for this needs assessment.
