City of Greater Bendigo residents can have their say online about the city's health and wellbeing plan.December 20, 2012 4:20am
District residents are being invited to have their say on Bendigo’s Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan in a new online discussion forum.
The interactive online discussion is a new way to engage the community on health and wellbeing issues.
City of Greater Bendigo director of planning and development Prue Mansfield said this was the first time the shire had used this type of forum and encouraged the community to have its say.
‘‘Each fortnight there will be a different series of questions or statements under the three themes of liveability, productivity and sustainability,’’ Ms Mansfield said.
‘‘People can express their views online in an interactive conversation with other people in the community.
‘‘This is an easy opportunity for the whole community to be involved wherever they access the internet, at home, on their phone or perhaps at the library.
‘‘In addition to this online discussion, the community can have their say in several ways over the coming months.
‘‘There will be a number of workshops in February across the municipality and an open house at the city’s main office in Bendigo.
‘‘City staff will also be available at several shopping centres throughout Greater Bendigo for people to have their say on the health and wellbeing of their community.’’
Comments and suggestions can be made in any of these ways and will be considered when developing the draft plan.
