Consultation on new Stroud District Council Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019-2022

Date of Online Consultation
Thursday 4th July to Wednesday 14th August

Consultation Summary

Supporting the health and wellbeing of residents is a fundamental reason for the existence of district councils.

Stroud District Council creates a Health and Wellbeing Plan to pull together the golden thread of health and wellbeing that runs throughout the work of the council.

While this document cannot mention every piece of work that impacts wellbeing, it does indicate the breadth of wellbeing work undertaken by the council and areas of focus over the next three years.

The Plan also illustrates how the wellbeing needs of the District are ascertained and therefore how priorities for Health & Wellbeing have been determined. It also shows how these feeds into other strategies both within Stroud District Council and for Gloucestershire County.


SDC Priorities for Health & Wellbeing Plan 2019-2022

Based on population health data, local information, our statutory duties and the scope of our influence, the following Health & Wellbeing issues have been prioritised.

Priority 1. Supporting Healthy Lifestyles

Priority 2. Developing Stronger Communities

Priority 3. Improving Housing

Priority 4. Protecting the Public and our Environment

Priority 5. Partnering the Statutory, Voluntary and Community Sectors


Each priority has four or five actions summarised in the Health & Wellbeing Action Plan.


The full Health & Wellbeing Plan 2019-2022 contains more detail about work going on across the council and evidence for why these priorities have been chosen.
