Regional Public Health Plan
The Councils of Adelaide Plains, Barossa, Gawler, and Light Regional have collaborated to prepare their second Regional Public Health Plan to improve the health and wellbeing of people in the region. The plan is a legislative requirement of the South Australian Public Health Act 2011.
The new Barossa, Light and Lower Northern Region Regional Public Health Plan 2022-2027 identifies top regional public health challenges and three regional ‘lighthouse’ projects.
Regional Lighthouse Projects
Regional Project 1
Community, transport, cycling and walking
Regional Project 2
Mental health and suicide prevention
Regional Project 3
Community participation project
Councils have a key role in providing supportive environments for their communities to lead healthy lifestyles. The Regional Public Health Plan provides a coordinated approach to the health of all communities in the region.
