Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan

A Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan is a plan prepared in response to Section 26 of the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 that:

(a) includes an examination of data about health status and health determinants in the municipal district;
(b) identifies goals and strategies based on available evidence for creating a local community in which people can achieve maximum health and wellbeing;
(c) provides for the involvement of people in the local community in the development, implementation and evaluation of the public health and wellbeing plan;
(d) specifies how the Council will work in partnership with the Department and other agencies undertaking public health initiatives, projects and programs to accomplish the goals and strategies identified in the public health and wellbeing plan;

Local Government Councils must, in consultation with the Secretary of the Department of Health, prepare a municipal public health and wellbeing plan within the period of 12 months after each general election of the Council.
