The City is embarking on a major health kick – and we want your opinion on the goals we’ve set for ourselves.

Our draft Public Health Plan will help us improve the health and wellbeing of our community members, giving them the opportunity to thrive and make healthy choices.

The five-year plan includes goals to give people more opportunities to be active and increase healthy food and drink options at our venues, events, festivals and community activities.

We are also looking to deliver programs to help reduce falls in seniors, encourage responsible drinking and promote screening and immunisation campaigns.

The plan includes a target to achieve smoke-free town centres by 2025.

This would include main shopping, dining and entertainment strips on Oxford Street, Leederville, Beaufort Street, Angove Street in North Perth and Scarborough Beach Road in Mt Hawthorn to reduce people's exposure to harmful second-hand tobacco smoke, discourage the normalising of smoking to young people and reduce litter from cigarette butts.

We are inviting community feedback on the plan and will consult Town Teams, local business owners, licensed venues and health stakeholders on the implementation of smoke-free town centres. Designated smoking areas will allow for people to smoke safely in well-lit areas and licensed venues with outdoor smoking areas within their venues will not be impacted.

During our initial consultation earlier this year, community members identified the factors that helped them lead a happy, healthy and connected life in Vincent. This included social connections, up-to-date public health information, community facilities, parks, walking and cycling opportunities, events and activities and vibrant town centres.

These common themes helped shape the Public Health Plan and our health and wellbeing goals for the next five years.
