Coorong District Council

Environmental Health Management Plan

This Environmental Health Management Plan sets out the Coorong District Council’s Environmental Health objectives for the next five years. The Plan addresses:

  • Council’s statutory responsibilities for Environmental Health;
  • Environmental Health issues of importance to the community;
  • Relevant Commonwealth and State Government policy;
  • Relevant goals in Council’s Strategic Plan; and
  • Key values for ensuring the effective delivery of Environmental Health services such as ensuring accountability, a pro-active approach and creating effective partnerships with key stakeholders.

The Plan is an important component of Council’s Sustainable Development Department and provides strategic guidance for the operations under the following functional areas:

  • Food Safety
  • Immunisation
  • Notifiable Disease Control
  • Housing Conditions and Amenity
  • Manufactured Water Systems
  • Public Health Pest Control
  • Hairdressing and Skin Penetration Activities
  • Waste Management
  • Water Quality
  • Waste Control Systems
  • Built Environment
  • Emergency Management, and
  • HACC Home Maintenance and Modification.

The Environmental Health Management Plan was developed in consultation with the Sustainable Development Department. The Plan reflects current strengths in the operations as well as opportunities for improvement. Importantly, the Plan also recognises proposed State Government legislative reforms for a range of environmental health functions, for example, further food legislation reforms. The impacts of such reforms will need to be monitored by the Department and reported to Council.

Objectives and actions recommended throughout this Plan take into account the current level of the Departments resources.

The Environmental Health Team is committed to achieving the objectives of this Plan, while continually monitoring and improving their performance.
