Health & Wellbeing
Health & Wellbeing Plan
We recognise that the health and wellbeing of individuals and families is a key foundation for a sustainable, safe and prosperous community.
The Council’s primary function is to protect, improve and promote the health and wellbeing of our community.
Physically, mentally and socially healthy people make strong communities. The Council Plan 2017-2021(PDF, 5MB) incorporates our plan to protect and enhance community health and wellbeing. It is reflected in our planning framework, which includes our Council vision, it informs our strategic objectives and our commitment is illustrated in our operational plan, which outlines specific actions for implementation.
This approach is in accordance with Section 26 of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, which provides for Councils to integrate public health and wellbeing matters into their Council Plan. Strategies and actions to support the achievement of our Council Plan form the basis of 12-month departmental business plans. The tasks supporting departmental actions are then included in individual performance plans.
