Glenelg Shire Council Health and Wellbeing Plan

Council prepares a new Health and Wellbeing Plan after each election. Councillors were elected in October 2016 and have until 30 October 2017 to adopt a new Health and Wellbeing Plan for the next 4 years. The plan will be made up of themes (broad areas of interest and importance), objectives (what we want to achieve) and strategies (how we will achieve them), which will drive the direction of Council over the 4 years. In simple terms, the direction helps Council to decide where it will invest its time and resources.

People of the Glenelg Shire had the opportunity to raise issues they care about and contribute ideas for Council to consider during February and early March, through a series of workshops, activities, and our Your Say Glenelg page. The response was outstanding. We have collated all of the feedback we've received so far, including surveys, forum comments, email, meetings, community workshops and good old fashioned conversations, which has informed our direction for the next four years.

The draft plan has been released for comment and can be found online both on this page (below) and (Your Say Glenelg and our website), and at all Glenelg Shire Council customer service centres. We will be visiting a number of communities across the Shire in the next few weeks with hard copies, and we look forward to talking with you then. Please join us at one of the following sessions:
