Working with Local Government

Local government has an important role to play in making healthier choices easier for its citizens and those that live, learn, work and play in their regions.

In April 2019, the Healthy Families Lower Hutt Strategic Leadership Group provided a written and oral submission to Hutt City Council on the proposed Central City Transformation Plan. 

The submission captured the opportunities that Hutt City Council have in creating a central city environment that enables the health and wellbeing of all our people.
