Healthy Streets and Places

The streets, places and spaces we live in has a large effect on our health and wellbeing. The way we plan and build our villages, towns and cities affects our short and long term health. The streets, places and spaces we live in can make healthy living easier to build into our daily lives.  

See these sites for more information on healthy streets, places and spaces:

Healthy Streets Demonstration Grants program 

In 2021, we're working with Griffith City Council and Wagga Wagga City Council on Healthy Streets Demonstration projects.

The projects will use the Healthy Streets indicators and assessment process to score project areas before and after changes and lead to the development of case studies, increase understanding of the healthy streets approach and engage the community.

Healthy Town Challenge

The Healthy Town Challenge aims to create supportive environments and facilitate healthy living activities for community members.

  • The Challenge takes place in towns of 1,000 to 15,000 residents and towns receiving the grant receive funding to undertake a range of projects and programs.
  • We're supporting two projects at present:
    • Snowy Valleys have included activities such as building of wicking beds in Tumut and Tumbarumba public spaces and wicking bed online tutorials and competitions. See more here
    • Holbrook have focussed on Youth, Healthy Clubs and Groups Catering and Participation and have encouraged NSW Get Healthy Service coaching.
