Plan making: Bellingen


Bellingen Banner

Summary

This case study describes a collaborative partnership between three agencies to embed healthy planning principles in a rural shire council on the northern coast of New South Wales. It describes the factors that lead to this collaborative, the staff relationships it established between the agencies and the impact this new way of thinking has had on council planning, local health activities and interest from the community.

In summary the integration of these healthy planning principles into local government has resulted in a legitimacy to develop local planning schemes that will strengthen active living for all community members; funding solutions for the implementation of sustainable infrastructure through innovative controls; and new partnerships between planning and health.
