Council’s grooviest outdoor event series returns this month. The first event in the popular Groove and Graze series will take place on Saturday 26 October at Halley Park, Jasper Road, Bentleigh.
The Council Plan outlines how we will dedicate our organisation and its resources to supporting our community, strengthening trust, embedding collaboration and prioritising the areas that are most important to the people who live, work and play here.
Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said Council has listened to community members to ensure the areas of focus included in our draft Plan reflect the views and aspirations of our broader community.
“In particular, we sought to engage with those whose voices are often harder to hear to ensure our draft Council Plan reflects the hopes and aspirations of our diverse and unique community,” she said.
Cr Esakoff said the draft Community Wellbeing Plan 2021–2025 will guide how Council plans and supports our residents to enjoy good health and wellbeing and to be resilient at every stage of life.
“It responds to the needs of children, young people, families, older people, people with disability, people experiencing disadvantage, and people with diverse identities and from a range of cultures who live in our community,” she said.
“The draft Community Wellbeing Plan shows you how Council plans to tackle the municipality’s most pressing health and wellbeing priorities, and how it will work with the people in our community to connect, support and engage them throughout their lives.”
