The Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan was adopted by Council at the September 2021 meeting. A final version of the document is available in the Document Library. Thank you for your participation

In collaboration with our partner organisations, Council has prepared a four-year Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP) which reflects our strategic directions to improve the health and wellbeing of residents in Murrindindi Shire.

In the development of the MPHWP, we have considered

  • the priorities of our partner organisations via the Murrindindi Shire Health and Wellbeing Consortium (the Consortium)
  • community feedback from the Shaping Our Future project
  • health and wellbeing data for Murrindindi Shire
  • our legislative requirements

The MPHWP is made up of four strategic themes that are supported by the Community Vision and Council Plan

  • Our Connected Community
  • Our Active Environments
  • Our Healthy People
  • Our Strong Partnerships

Council will work with The Consortium over the next four years to deliver on the strategies set-out in the final MPHWP.

Share your thoughts on the plan by completing the feedback form.

We encourage you to review the draft Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan before providing your feedback. It is in the Document Library on the right-hand side of this page.


Feedback is now closed. Keep an eye on this page for future updates.

What is next?

All feedback will be considered by Council and our partners. We will then finalise the MPHWP, ready for adoption at the September 2021 Scheduled Meeting of Council.

What is a MPHWP?

A Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan is a key strategic document that sets out the direction for health and wellbeing within a municipality for a four-year period.

Under the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, it is a legislative requirement for councils to prepare and adopt a Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan following a council election.

Council works in partnership with health and wellbeing organisations in the community to design and implement the plan and to report back to the community on progress along the way.

What is The Consortium?

The Consortium is a collection of organisations and groups from across Murrindindi Shire that deliver health and wellbeing programs or have an influence in this space. The Consortium is essential in the creation and delivery of actions within our Health and Wellbeing Plan, and as such have a large influence in the direction of our strategies.

Members of the Consortium include

  • Department of Families, Fairness and Housing - Goulburn Area - East Division
  • Alexandra District Health
  • Yea and District Memorial Hospital
  • Nexus Primary Health
  • Lower Hume Primary Care Partnership
  • Menzies Support Services
