Municipal public health and wellbeing plan

Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan

Council’s Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017 – 2021 is a key strategic document for Council and other agencies with an aim to improve the health and wellbeing of our community. It sets out the broad mission, goals and priorities identified for the next four years and brings together key stakeholders and partner organisations in collaboration to identify and respond to the main health and wellbeing challenges facing our municipality.

The Plan builds on the work being undertaken to support health and wellbeing in our community and takes into account, feedback from our community and partner organisations, changes in State and Federal policy and opportunities to implement a best practice approach.  It uses a holistic approach in setting high level strategic focus areas with the agreed outcomes to be achieved and details how progress will be measured. 

The Plan builds on Council’s existing health and wellbeing related strategies and programs, specifically addressing four priority focus areas:

  • Good physical health
  • Good mental health
  • Protect and promote health
  • Feel safe and secure
