East Herts Physical Activity Strategy 2017 - 2022

Public Consultation June 9 - July 19 2017

draft Physical Activity Strategy [4Mb]

This draft strategy sets out our proposed approach to improving the health and wellbeing of East Herts residents by increasing participation in everyday physical activity.

Our aim is to encourage active lifestyles, whether that is at home, through travel, at work or during leisure time. 

We want to increase rates of physical activity of residents to improve health - both mental and physical - through council, community and partnership means.

We aim to achieve this at zero-cost to the council to ensure long term sustainability. 

We would welcome your views on the draft strategy and the ways in which we plan to achieve its vision and objectives.

Please could you spare a few minutes to complete the questionnaire online by July 19 2017.

These machines are designed so that any one can use them.
