Constructing high quality sporting facilities for the health and wellbeing of the community has led to Council being awarded the 2020 Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity (UNSW) Annual Award for Health Impact Assessments.
Council received the award for the Health Impact Assessment of Narellan Sports Hub Stage 2.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli said the award was a great reward for Council’s focus on the overall health of Camden.
“The health and wellbeing of the community is of paramount importance and that is taken into consideration for all of Council’s projects,” Cr Fedeli said.
“We are proud to have been acknowledged for our work and will continue to work towards assisting our community in the best possible way.
“I am excited to see construction of Narellan Sports Hub stage two begin recently and look forward to its completion.”
Council staff were invited by the Centre for Health Equity Training, Research and Evaluation (CHETRE) to nominate a project and participate in Health Impact Assessment (HIA) Training to better understand the potential positive, negative or unexpected impacts of actions on health impacts the project will have on the community.
