Tell us how we can be a healthy, connected and thriving Glen Eira

We are about to launch a large-scale period of engagement to help inform the Council Plan 2021–25 and the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2021–25 and a number of plans and strategies. 

The new Glen Eira 2040 Community Vision outlines the aspirations of the Glen Eira community over the next 20 years. Now we want to prioritise our actions for the next four years to bring your vision into focus.

The extensive engagement with our community during the development of the Community Vision has provided Council with deep insights about what is important. We’ve heard that strong connection, health and wellbeing, along with many other areas are important to our community. Our experience during the COVID-19 pandemic has also shown us how important the health, resilience and our sense of community is to our way of life. As we begin our recovery from the pandemic, we want to know more about how we can continue to help the community to recover and thrive in the future.

Council is about to start planning for the next four years and is developing its Council Plan 2021-2025. The Council Plan will outline how we will support our community, how we will plan for the future and how we will deliver on the priorities for our city.

At the same time, we will be developing our new Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2021–2025. Our community’s health and wellbeing has never been more important, as we commence our recovery from the global pandemic. Understanding how we can best support our community address a range of important health and wellbeing priorities will be the focus of this plan.

How can you get involved?

Over the coming months, we will be offering a range of opportunities for the community to engage with us about these important questions and delve into some of the key issues and opportunities over the next four years. There are many options available to have your say including surveys; pop up engagements; focus groups; and targeted engagement activities with key stakeholders, people with disabilities, children and young people and community groups and organisations.

In the meantime, we encourage you to take part in the quick poll to help us understand what's important to you and to gauge your interest in participating further.
