Draft Public Health Plan

Greater Shepparton City Council has prepared a draft Public Health Strategic Plan to capture public health priorities for the next ten years, and is asking the community for feedback.

This Public Health Strategic Plan is important to advocate for change, lobby for improved services, work in collaboration across sectors and with community to encourage active lifestyles and challenge existing behaviours and habits across the life stages.

The new approach has considered public health across eleven liveability domains that reflect the basic needs for every individual to achieve optimum health; Access to Food, Arts and Culture, Community Participation, Crime and Safety, Education, Employment, Health and Social Services, Housing, Recreation Facilities and Public Open Space, Sustainable Practices and Transport.

Consultation will be open from 17 October 2018 until 7 November 2018.

Council encourage individuals, local businesses and community to get involved stepping forward and make contact with our Active Living team during the consultation period as workgroups are formed for each domain.

Consultation will be open for four weeks only so please take some time to let us know your suggestions or feedback by sending us an email:
