The role of local government is to ensure compliance with Public Health regulations and to initiate a range of activities, programs, assets and services, intended to protect and promote the health of its communities on behalf of ratepayers.

This strategy provides a framework that is reflective of current Shire practice in public health and identifies opportunities for the future.

The Shire of Mundaring recognises that a whole of organisation approach, along with partnerships with other government and non-government agencies, local organisations and the broader community, are essential for the delivery of community health and wellbeing outcomes.

The Shire is committed to the following goals to promote and support a healthy community:

  • Supporting a mentally and physically healthy community
  • Empowering and enabling our people and community to make healthy lifestyle choices
  • Fostering an age-friendly community 
  • Preventing and controlling infectious disease
  • Building and maintaining safe places to live, work, and play
  • Protecting the community by encouraging a healthy environment
  • Regulating and managing the built and natural environments to encourage sustainable and healthy living.
