The range of health and wellbeing services delivered by local government help to establish many of the necessary conditions upon which good health and wellbeing is dependant. Whether it is waste collection, urban planning, road maintenance, local government health services or the provision of aquatic centres and gymnasiums; the functions performed by local government either directly or indirectly have a significant bearing on the health and wellbeing of the community.
