Mansfield Courier - - NEWS -

THE Mans­field Mu­nic­i­pal Public Health and Well­be­ing Plan­ning (MPHWBP) Work­shop held last month at the Mans­field Golf Club “is the start of a new ap­proach t o how we im­prove the health and well­be­ing of our Mans­field com­mu­nity”, ac­cord­ing t o Mans­field Shire Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Alex Green.

The work­shop was fa­cil­i­tated by Pro­fes­sor Steven Al­len­der and his team from the Global Obe­sity Cen­tre (GLOBE), help­ing the com­mu­nity bring their thoughts to­gether on the day.

Com­ple­tion of this sur­vey is im­por­tant and will as­sist the team de­velop fur­ther de­tailed ac­tions to con­tinue the mo­men­tum of the plan.

The in­for­ma­tion gath­ered to date will en­sure the key is­sues are cap­tured and that the de­tail truly re­flects the Mans­field Shire, the is­sues it faces as a com­mu­nity and what the com­mu­nity can com­mit to do about it.

The for­mal doc­u­ment is the Mu­nic­i­pal Health and Well­be­ing Plan and the draft will be avail­able for public com­ment in the next few weeks.

This will al­low for fur­ther feed­back, as well as feed­back from oth­ers in the com­mu­nity.

Soon, the GLOBE team will be re­turn­ing to Mans­field to de­liver a two day work­shop on sys­tems think­ing.

This will as­sist the broader com­mu­nity to con­nect to de­liver ac­tions out of the MPHWBP and have them linked back to the pri­or­i­ties de­fined in the plan.

This is an im­por­tant part of the process and al­lows coun­cil to hold it­self to ac­count in de­liv­er­ing on ac­tions.

If you wish to at­tend, the t rain­ing will be held at t he Mans­field Li­brary with train­ing, cater­ing and Wifi in­cluded.
