At the 20 July council meeting, the draft Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan was endorsed for community consultation. The Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan is an important document for South Gippsland as it sets out broad strategic directions, priorities and actions to support improving the health and wellbeing of local residents.

Council has heard loud and clear how important health and wellbeing is to the community, so council has made a draft ready for the community feedback that closes on 04 August 2022

Consultation was undertaken

The draft Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan identifies five key themes:

  • Equity
  • Improved mental wellbeing
  • Increasing healthy and active living
  • Increasing healthy eating
  • Tackling Climate Change

Extensive community consultation was undertaken to develop the draft plan, including conversations with key stakeholders such as local community groups and health and wellbeing service providers. It also incorporates information from other research projects and community surveys that were completed earlier this year.

Priorities of the plan

The draft plan references priorities of the State Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019 - 2023, which is a requirement under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, including strategies to address climate change and prevention of family violence.
