About our Draft Public Health Plan

We encourage residents, ratepayers and businesses to take a look at our draft Public Health Plan 2020-2025 and provide feedback by 24 August 2020.

The South Australian Public Health Act 2011 (the Act) commenced in 2012 and replaced the South Australian Public and Environmental Health Act 1987. One of the key components of the Act is the requirement for each Council to develop their own Public Health Plan.

The City of Charles Sturt has a vital role in protecting and promoting the health and wellbeing of our local community. Council delivers a range of core functions and services that influence our community’s health and wellbeing. This Public Health Plan identifies those core functions and provides a framework to enhance the understanding of public health priorities for the City, consequently supporting improved public health and wellbeing outcomes for our Community.

Protecting, promoting and improving public health requires a combined effort from local, state and commonwealth governments, private and non-government providers and the community.It also requires action at social, economic and environmental levels.Council, as defined by the Act, has a role to advocate, regulate, directly deliver and partner with other parties where appropriate.

This is the second Public Health and Plan for the City of Charles Sturt. It has been developed to align with Council’s other plans, strategies, by-laws, policies, programs and services. In addition, each program, service and strategic driver for the City of Charles Sturt has also been aligned to the State Public Health Plan (SPHP) 2019 – 2024 and its vision for "A healthy, liveable and connected community for all South Australians."
