Cardinia Shire Council adopts Liveability Plan Review  

Published: 14 December 2021

Cardinia Shire Council last night endorsed the reviewed Liveability Plan at its final council meeting for 2021. 

The Liveability Plan 2017 - 2029 is Cardinia Shire’s long-term strategy to improve health and wellbeing with a focus on tackling the impact of climate change on health and improving liveability indicators such as active travel, education, employment, food, housing, environment and open space and community infrastructure and services.  

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Jeff Springfield said creating a more liveable community would lead to greater health and wellbeing outcomes for Cardinia Shire residents. 

The plan outlines seven health and wellbeing outcomes to be achieved over the life of the plan: 

  • Improve Mental Health and Wellbeing 
  • Improve Social Cohesion 
  • Improve Safety 
  • Improve Healthy Eating and Active Living  
  • Reduce Family Violence  
  • Improve Financial Wellbeing and Resilience  
  • Reduce Harm from Tobacco, Alcohol, Drugs and Gambling  

“This is an important plan for our shire and we encourage everyone to jump online and take a look at our adopted Liveability Plan.” 

As part of the Victorian Government Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, Council’s Liveability Plan will be monitored over the coming four years before it is next reviewed in 2025.
