Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan

Council plays a significant role in planning for our community to be healthy and well.

Council has a legislative requirement to prepare a Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan within 12 months of each general election of Council.

Under the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 (Act), plans must:

  • include data about health status and determinants in the Council
  • identify goals and strategies for a community where people can achieve maximum health and wellbeing
  • involve residents in developing, implementing and evaluating the plan
  • specify how we'll work with the Department of Health and Human Services and other relevant agencies to accomplish our goals and strategies.

The draft Glen Eira Community Wellbeing Plan 2021-2025 will supersede the current  Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017–2021 (PDF, 8MB). The new plan has been developed using knowledge from research, health and wellbeing profile statistics, and recent community engagement data.

The draft Glen Eira Community Wellbeing Plan 2021-2025 is currently in its final phase of community engagement. This phase commenced on 11 August and will run through to 30 September, with completion and endorsement by Council to follow in October 2021. 

We encourage you to review the draft plan and provide final comment on our Have your Say page. You can also view other projects and activities that are open for community feedback.

Each year we review the plan to highlight our key achievements (PDF, 92KB), and provide updates on health priority areas. We also develop annual action plans throughout the life of the four year plan. These documents identify the activities we will undertake to meet each priority. Download our current Action Plan July 2020–June 2021 (PDF, 3MB).
