Health Plans 

The development of a public health plan is a requirement of the Public Health Act 2016.10 

The Community Health and Wellness Plan 2021 – 2026 will fulfill this requirement and will be an informing strategy aligned within the City’s integrated planning and reporting framework.

This commitment to public health planning stems from the broadening acknowledgement of the role of local government in collaboration with the State and other local, region and state-based stakeholders toward supporting public health.
