Liveability Plan 2017-2021

Strathbogie Shire Council is currently developing its 2017-2021 Liveability Plan and is calling on the community to have their input.

As a result, a Liveability Survey is now underway, asking residents to tell Council about their health and wellbeing.

Council is required, under the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, to develop a Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan every four years.

The Liveability Plan will outline priorities for Council, in partnership with local services, to improve health outcomes for people working, studying and living in the Strathbogie Shire.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Waste of money - why is Council spending money on another survey?

To make sure that the Liveability Plan is representative of our community, we ask that all residents participate in development of the document. Many face to face consultations have taken place across the Shire and the inclusion of a survey provides a snapshot of the state of health and wellbeing of individuals in our community.

2. Waste of time - what is Council going to get out of this survey?

This survey will help identify the health and wellbeing priorities of our community. By completing the survey, you are providing valuable data that assists with the development of programs and provision of services. A summary of results will be made available to the public in the Liveability Plan.

3. Personal questions - where do I go for help if completing the survey has caused me distress?

Even though the survey is anonymous, please only complete questions that you are comfortable answering. Some of the questions are extremely personal and may cause distress to some community members. It is important to acknowledge the feelings that may arise from this survey and seek help if needed. This may be by talking with a friend or family member or asking for professional help.
