Scenic Rim Regional Council Health and Wellbeing Plan 2015-2020
In 2010 Scenic Rim Regional Council prepared two strategic plans - a Social Plan 2010-2020 and a Sport and Recreation Plan 2010-2020. Both plans recommended a review in 2015. As the two plans shared many common goals and objectives, the review resulted in the merging of the two documents into the Scenic Rim Health and Wellbeing Plan 2015-2020 which better reflects the social, health, sport and recreation needs of the region. The two original plans will remain important resources to track trends and overall performance. Scenic Rim region remains the second fastest growing LGA in SEQ and the fourth fastest State wide as a percentage of the population. This further reinforces the importance of having effective plans and strategies to address the needs of a growing population while protecting the health and wellbeing of our local community.
