Abstract Giving every child the best start in life is crucial to reducing health inequalities across the life course. What happens in the early years has lifelong effects on many aspects of health and well-being– from obesity, heart disease and mental health, to educational achievement and economic status. The environment in which we live is inextricably linked to our health across the life course and our ability to make healthy choices. Unhealthy urban environments are a driver of health inequalities in cities, with exposures such as unhealthy food and drink outlets, gambling premises, poor air quality clustering in deprived areas.As part of London's health and social care devolution commitment, London partners are collaborating to develop an innovative approach to creating healthier and safer environments for children to live, learn and play. ‘School Superzones' are the 400m radius area around schools in which a range of public health issues are addressed in concert to develop a healthier zone. School superzones are targeted to deprived areas on boroughs, addressing environmental and health inequalities. Superzone action plans are co-produced locally; tailored to suit the character of the neighbourhood.Thirteen London boroughs have participated in an exploratory project to test, develop and refine the superzones approach. Much has been learned through this development phase. Early successes include political buy-in, stakeholder engagement, co-production and sharing of best-practices. We are currently working with the University of Manchester on a process evaluation and planning to embed a complex systems evaluation into further rollout of the superzones approach.
