Frankston City Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021

The Frankston City Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017–2021 is the Council’s strategic plan for how we will work over the next four years to create well planned and liveable neighbourhoods so that residents can enjoy good health and wellbeing at every stage of life.

The Plan fulfils the requirement of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 for all Victorian councils to prepare and adopt a Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan every four years within 12 months of a local government election to outline the health and wellbeing priorities for the area.

The plan is also Council’s Disability Action Plan and has been developed to be aligned with the Victorian State Disability Plan 2017-2020 to support people with a disability to live satisfying everyday lives. The Year Two Action Plan has a summary of the actions that will support people with disabilities.

The Plan was developed from the following:

  • A comprehensive analysis of demographic data and health and liveability statistics.
  • A review of a broad body of evidence and research on the key determinants of health and health inequalities.
  • Think Big Frankston and other community consultation conducted from October 2016 to March 2017 to gain information from residents, businesses and local groups.
  • The professional expertise of council officers and our partner organisations.
  • A review of the previous Frankston City Health and Wellbeing Plan 2013-17.
