Southern Eyre Peninsula Regional Public Health Plan

The Southern Eyre Peninsula Councils have prepared a joint Public Health Plan to meet the requirements of the South Australian Public Health Act 2011.  The Plan addresses needs and obligations of the following three local government areas:

  • District Council of Tumby Bay
  • District Council of Lower Eyre Peninsula
  • City of Port Lincoln.

The following four key goal areas of the State Public Health Plan 'South Australia - A Better Place to Live' underpins our Plan:

  • Stronger and Healthier Communities and Neighbours for All Generations
  • Increasing Opportunities for Healthy Living, Healthy Eating and Being Active
  • Preparing for Climate Change
  • Sustaining and Improving Public Health and Environmental Health Protection

"The Plan has been prepared to ensure the wellbeing of our community is at the forefront of policy and decision-making by all levels of government.  Local government is at the centre of community life and we have carefully considered the community's aspirations to improve health and wellbeing.

Our region has a rich natural environment, and a diverse economy with growing industries in aquaculture and mining.

Our community is cohesive and resilient and together we have faced the recent adversity of drought and devastating bushfires.  We continue to face the challenges of distance when it comes to providing services to our community.  This Plan recognises and aims to build upon the wide range of services and other inititatives that our Councils provide to the community.  Through this Plan, we see opportunities to build upon our work to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.  In particular, we believe this is an opportunity to improve the coordination and level of service delivery across the region through stronger partnerships with state and federal governments.  We will use this Plan to advocate for the needs of our community into the future."
