In 2016, the WA State Government introduced a new Public Health Act. As this Act is phased in, Local Government will have a greater role in creating supportive environments that allow community to experience good health. The City has been proactive in this area through developing a Public Health Plan that outlines key strategies and actions which fit under the board priority areas of:

  • Environmental Health Protection 
  • Chronic Disease Prevention and
  • Enhanced Community Lifestyle

Relevant information, programs and facilities relating to these priority areas can be found below:
