Parks and Leisure Australia and partners: advocacy messages

Parks and Leisure Australia calls for all levels of government to make planning and funding urban health infrastructure a central priority, in order to improve the health and well-being of the population.All metropolitan and regional cities should be required to develop Urban Health Infrastructure Plans. These will build on the natural attributes of our coasts, rivers, parks and bushland, extend our open space networks and reimagine our cities as healthy and active living places.
The plans will identify current and future opportunities to expand public open space and to green our streets, laneways, roads and other infrastructure corridors, making city’s cooler and enabling people to walk, ride and be active outdoors.
