Public Health and Wellbeing Plan

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, City of Burnside, Campbelltown City Council, City of Prospect and the Town of Walkerville have worked together to develop their first Regional Public Health Plan, in response to the requirements of the South Australian Public Health Act 2011.

The Plan outlines opportunities to promote and protect the public health of the community across 3 theme areas:

  • Environments for Health – including the built, natural and economic environmental features of the region which influence health (including transport, walkability and open space);
  • Capacity for Health - including lifestyle factors, community connections, access to services and community engagement; and
  • Protecting Public Health - including immunisation, food safety, emergency management and public health services.
