The Limestone Coast Regional Public Health and Wellbeing Plan is a joint initiative of the Limestone Coast councils aimed at supporting the health and wellbeing of the region’s residents. Councils have many responsibilities under the South Australian Public Health Act 2011, one of which is the requirement to maintain and review a Regional Public Health Plan.
The Limestone Coast Local Government Association (LCLGA) has now endorsed the Limestone Coast Regional Health and Wellbeing Plan for community engagement across our region. The key themes for action across the Plan include:
- Stronger and Healthier Communities and Neighbourhoods for all Generations;
- Increasing Opportunities for Healthy Living, Eating and Being Active;
- Preparing for Climate Change; and
- Sustaining and Improving Public and Environmental Health.
It is important to recognise that each Council within the Limestone Coast has different resources and capabilities for delivery of public health initiatives. These differences are recognised through the inclusion of a separate Action Plan for each Council. Kingston District Council’s Action Plan can be found on page 27, with the identified actions and themes to reflect Council’s Community Plan. (*Note: Where there have been amendments to Council’s Community Plan, these will be updated in the Regional Health Plan accordingly*)
