Draft plans released for public comment

26 September 2018

Circular Head and Waratah-Wynyard councils have released a series of community plans for a period of public consultation.

Both Councils endorsed the draft Community Health and Wellbeing Plan, Age-Friendly Communities Plan and Youth Plan(YPLAN) for public consultation at their respective Council meetings last week.

The plans are a major planning initiative of both the Waratah-Wynyard and Circular Head Councils to provide an evidence-based long-term direction for the planning and implementation of health and wellbeing, age friendly and youth specific projects and activities that will improve outcomes for both communities.

Tracey Bradley, Director of Community Services across both Councils said each plan was intended to support everyone living in Circular Head and Waratah-Wynyard to improve their health and enjoy enhanced wellbeing.

“The plans are a five-year roadmap for promoting and improving the physical, mental and social wellbeing of our community” she said.

“They have been developed to reflect both research, data and local knowledge and experience.

“The integrated nature of the plans reflects the ongoing close working relationship between Circular Head and Waratah-Wynyard Councils, and the way in which strategic goals are set in tandem.

“While the plans are joint strategies, the aim is to target actions to meet the individual needs of the communities.”

Copies of the plans are available online at www.warwyn.tas.gov.au/yoursay and from www.circularhead.tas.gov.au/yoursay and are also available from both Council offices. Comments close at 5pm on Wednesday 24 October 2018.
