Draft Southern Eyre Peninsula Regional Public Health Plan 2023 - 2028

Project Overview

A new outlook for public health

Southern Eyre Peninsula

The City of Port Lincoln, Lower Eyre Council and District Council of Tumby Bay invite feedback from the community on its draft Southern Eyre Peninsual Regional Public Health Plan 2023 - 2028. In accordance with the SA Public Health Act 2011, the plan outlines the role of councils in health protection in the Southern Eyre Peninsula region.

Responding to a very changed health and wellbeing landscape in recent years,the three councils have released the new Regional Public Health Plan to guide their communities over the next 5 years.

The region's first plan was released in 2015. This revision has been updated to include current population and health data, to align with the State's current priorities for public health, and outline the actions and strategies our region's Councils plan to take during the next five years to strive for better health and wellbeing for our communities.

Recognising the challenges and changes forced upon communities by the global COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the effects of financial and cost-of-living pressures upon community members’ health and wellbeing, the health plan is a dynamic and relevant document.

Your feedback will be appreciated.

The simplest way to give your feedback is here on the City of Port Lincoln's YourSay portal - type your feedback into the fields to the right or upload a document.

Alternatively, hard copies of the draft plan will also be available at the offices of the City of Port Lincoln, Lower Eyre Council and District Council of Tumby Bay, and you can submit feedback by post or in person.

All submissions need to be received by Council by 5pm on Thursday 23 March 2023.
