We want your ideas on the health and wellbeing of our community. You can make a difference by helping shape Greater Shepparton City Council’s Public Health and Wellbeing Action Plan.

Public Health is the foundation for the growth and development of our community. It is so much more than just a life free from illness and disease, it’s our ability to work, play and connect with our community.

We are in a unique position to create positive change in the health and wellbeing of all residents, visitors and workers, providing leadership in health promotion, coordination, planning, advocacy and the provision of services.

Public Health planning for Greater Shepparton is delivered and reported at three levels to meet statutory requirements of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 and the Local Government Act 2020.

  1. Greater Shepparton Public Health Strategic Plan 2018 – 2028
    This plan takes a whole of Council approach and commitment to creating a healthy and liveable regional city.
  2. Greater Shepparton Council Plan 2021 – 2025
    The Council Plan sets out how we will work towards achieving our Community Vision over the next four years. This plan incorporates health and wellbeing as part of its design and recognises the impact the social, built, economic and natural environments have on preventing ill health and increasing wellbeing.
  3. Greater Shepparton Public Health and Wellbeing Action Plan
    Developed annually, this plan identifies key targets, actions and measures to achieve positive health and wellbeing outcomes.

Public Health and Wellbeing matters are guided by Council’s Public Health and Wellbeing Advisory Committee. We acknowledge that community participation and partnerships make a real difference, in identifying solutions and achieving greater outcomes.
