Together in Nillumbik - Council's COVID recovery plan


COVID-19 has had a direct impact on people’s lives within the municipality. In August 2020, Council in partnership healthAbility launched the Together in Nillumbik Survey to gain an understanding of how COVID-19 was impacting the community.

A total of 380 responses were received and the data was analysed. Four themes were identified and a series of recommendations developed including:

  1. Inclusion
  2. Healthy environments
  3. Healthy behaviours
  4. Economic and education
