Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2021-2025

Submissions closing on 28 September 2021, 05:00 PM

Share your ideas on how we can boost health and wellbeing as we develop a new municipal health and wellbeing plan for the Macedon Ranges Shire.

The plan will contain Council's goals and actions to improve health and wellbeing over the next four years.

This plan is being developed alongside a new Disability Action Plan, which will reduce barriers and increase inclusion and participation for people with disability.
