The Ministry of Social Development’s Social Report, defines social wellbeing as:
“ …those aspects of life that society collectively agrees are important for a person’s happiness, quality of life and welfare. ”
The CCP provides for social wellbeing through:
Improved communication and a culture of working together by Government, ORC, QLDC, local community and visitors
Satisfactory drinking water supply – safe and appealing to drink (in line with National Drinking Water Standards)
An engaged community supports social wellbeing through better understanding and working together to secure desired outcomes for current and future generations. Examples include actions to reduce water use, changing activities that affect stormwater discharges and assisting with community and citizen science projects.
