As we look to the future and what we want to see for the Moreton Bay region, it is the strategic documents we are developing today that will provide the roadmap for achieving our vision over the next 20 years.

Our Community Wellbeing Strategy will guide Council’s role in supporting resilient, healthy, inclusive and connected communities for the next 20 years.

We need your help to make sure our goal, our strategy and our outcome areas reflect the values and priorities of our communities.

Key services we deliver:

  • Community Development
  • Sport and Recreation
  • Major Venues
  • Community Facilities
  • Library Services
  • Arts and Cultural Services
  • Museums and Galleries
  • Disability Access and Inclusion Planning
  • Cultural Heritage Planning
  • Community Leasing
  • Community Halls
  • Community Grants and Partnerships
  • Local Laws
  • Public Health
  • Public Safety
  • Disaster Management
  • Cemeteries

What we want to achieve together

To achieve our vison and goal, we’ll be focusing on the following outcome areas:

Our communities make healthy and active lifestyle choices and have access to required services and facilities they need. Programs improve physical and mental health, create community connections and support our lifestyles. We provide opportunities for all ages, abilities and preferences.

Our communities are safe and resilient so that in times of adversity our people and places are supported. Safety, community development, and emergency management services and activities build resilience in our communities to respond to hardship, both large and small.

Our communities embrace opportunities for participation in creative experiences and celebrate the region's stories, cultures and identities. Cultural programs, events and facilities, including libraries, galleries and museums, stimulate and celebrate our diverse identities, arts and heritage.

We have inclusive and engaged communities that value diversity and sustain connections to people and places. Council’s programs build and support connection and inclusion for people of all ages, abilities, cultures and backgrounds. Traditional Custodians of our lands and waters are recognised and honoured.

More information about our key plans is available here in the Corporate Plan 2022-2027.

Thank you to everyone who provided input

From Wednesday 20 October to Wednesday 24 November 2021 we engaged with our communities all around the region who provided input into the development of the Regional Community Wellbeing Strategy via:

  • Community pop-ups in Bribie Island, Arana Hills, Redcliffe, Dayboro, Beachmere, Caboolture and Woodford.
  • Focus groups where we consulted with community members, community groups/organisations, service providers, young people, First Nations, people with a disability, LGBTIQA+, culturally and linguistically diverse and people over 65 years.
  • Moreton Says Pulse survey

You can read the Engagement Summary Report from our consultations here.

We're coming back in early 2023 to get your feedback on the draft strategy.
