| Draft Colac Otway Shire Physical Activity Strategy|
|At its February 2014 meeting, Council endorsed the commencement of public exhibition of the draft Colac Otway Shire Physical Activity Strategy in accordance with Council’s Community Engagement Policy 2010. |
The aim of the draft Strategy is to establish an evidence base to guide policy and decision making at a regional and municipal level. This will help to create an environment that supports physical activity and will generate recommendations that are linked into the Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan. The strategy particularly focuses on identifying physical activity interventions such as facility development, policies, programs and services that are cost effective and most likely to succeed in increasing people’s ongoing participation in physical activity using available resources and through the development of strategic partnerships.
The draft Strategy provides an overview of the importance of physical activity and the ways in which Council can help to create environments that support physical activity in the community, based on specific interventions supported by national and/or international evidence. The study also includes a Background Report and Evidence Review which detail the research and consultation outputs.
Council now seeks feedback from the community on the draft Physical Activity Strategy. Written submissions can be forwarded to Council’s email address – email@example.com – or postal address PO Box 283 Colac 3250. The closing date for submissions is Friday 11 April 2014.
Further information on the draft Strategy can be obtained by contacting Ian Seuren – Manager Recreation, Arts and Culture or (03) 5232 9476 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
