Keeping You Healthy; Council's Job?

The new Public Health Act that has been in force since Sept should see some changes in the way that Unley manages to provide opportunities to improve your health. Of course, you won't have to take them up! The link below will take you to the article in today's Advertiser. Council is currently responsible for immunizations and environmental health. Under the new legislation Council will have to take a far more active role, first of all  be developing a Plan and them gradually implementing it. Changes Council have already seen is this is the non-smoking initiatives. The new plan might also include education, identifying risk factors in the Community,continuing to provide open space where there is none (pocket parks) and improving bike paths and walkways.
