Health & Wellbeing Plan

All Councils across the state need to write a Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan every four years.

At Mornington Peninsula Shire, Councillors have chosen to integrate the Health and Wellbeing Plan together with the Council Plan to create a single Council and Wellbeing Plan 2021-2025. This highlights the importance of health and wellbeing across everything we do.

Councillors integrated health and wellbeing into the plan by considering the following information:

  • Policy direction set by the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019-2023
  • Data from a range of sources such as the Victorian Population Health Survey 2017 and Census 2016
  • Input from Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Health and Wellbeing Committee and ongoing conversations with stakeholders
  • Community voice from the Imagine Peninsula 2040 community vision project
  • Feedback from a Stakeholder Workshop held in June 2021

The plan is set out under three themes:

  • a healthy, natural environment and well-planned townships
  • a robust, innovative and diverse economy
  • a flourishing, healthy and connected community
