Kiama Health Plan


The Kiama Health Plan is designed to improve the health and well-being of our community and to protect and enhance the environment.

It identifies strategies to address priority issues and is divided in into 5 sections:

  • Socially connected, cohesive and diverse
  • Healthy and active
  • Food secure and food sustainable
  • Encourage and enhance a healthy and sustainable economy
  • Healthy, protected and sustainable environment

Kiama Council was one of the first councils in NSW to develop a Health Plan and Council remains an innovative leader in this policy area. The first Health Plan was developed in 1998/1999, followed by subsequent plans in 2005-2008, 2011-2017 and the current 2018-2021.

As a result of these initiatives, Kiama was recognised as a World Health Organisation (WHO) Healthy City in August 2008.

The new Kiama Health Plan builds on the work and success of previous Plans, where all Council departments work together to develop a healthier community. 

The outcomes of community consultations and subsequent recommendations that informed the revised Health Plan are available in:
