A plan for our health and wellbeing

The City of Stirling plays an important role in building communities that support the health and wellbeing of everyone living, working and visiting our region.

We are developing the City's Public Health Plan to ensure the services and programs we deliver, as well as the communities we create, have a positive impact on health and wellbeing both now and into the future.

Did you know?

The greatest contribution to the health of the nation over the past 150 years was made, not by doctors or hospitals, but by local government!

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, local government led the development of sewage and sanitation systems which resulted in the most significant reduction in death and disease in the 20th century.

Many other traditional local government functions have directly impacted the safety and health of communities such as ensuring safe drinking water, legislating for safe food, insisting on safe housing, enforcing safe streets and controlling mosquitoes and vermin.

What's new?

Today we are facing a new reality, changes to the way we live, work and play have brought new health challenges. Chronic illness is now a leading cause of death with obesity being a key contributor.

More than ever, local government's role is vital to the health and wellbeing of the community through managing public open space, coordinating cultural events and activities, facilitating economic development and providing recreation facilities and opportunities.

The City is increasingly aiming to build strong, healthy, self-reliant and resilient communities and the our Public Health Plan will guide the policies, services and resources supporting these outcomes.
