Health & wellbeing planning

Our Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan is integrated into our Council Plan 2017-21. By integrating these plans, our aim is to improve the quality of life for all people who live, work, learn and play in Moonee Valley by ensuring health and wellbeing matters are prioritised across all areas of Council.

About the plan

The Council Plan was formally approved and adopted by Council at its meeting on 27 June 2017. The plan consists of five themes shaped by the community vision, Moonee Valley Next Generation (MV2035):

  • Friendly and safe
  • Green, clean and beautiful
  • Sustainable living
  • Vibrant and diverse
  • Resilient organisation

Our health and wellbeing priorities for 2017-21 are:

  • gender equity and prevention of violence against women
  • active transport
  • mental health and alcohol and other drugs
  • reducing inequalities
  • creating liveable neighbourhoods
  • employment

The plan reflects valuable contributions from community, health service representatives and other levels of Government. It sets out an ambitious set of objectives and strategies that Council will work on with partners over the next four years.

Our health and wellbeing commitments and priorities are informed by:

There are a number of documents that will support the delivery and evaluation of our health and wellbeing commitments. These will include:

  • A Health and Wellbeing Plan Action Plan
  • A Health and Wellbeing Evaluation Framework
  • Annual Health and Wellbeing progress reports

We expect these documents will be ready for viewing in October.
