Local government area

The places where you spend your time have an impact on your health and the health and wellbeing of the people around you.

Whether it is through planning new developments, maintaining local amenities, or supporting local businesses and community groups, local government has a central role to play in supporting health and wellbeing across our communities.

By building resilience, addressing inequities and working with community partners across the local area, local government and community health can lead our communities to a healthier future.
