Brimbank residents are encouraged to participate in a new survey to contribute to community health and well-being.
The Council said the study examines the long-term effects of the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre, which is currently under construction in Keilor Downs.
Council is working with Victoria University on the study to better understand how local infrastructure and facilities such as the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Center can improve long-term health and wellness outcomes for the community.
Mayor Jasmine Nguyen said the new water and wellness center is a fantastic example of how social health outcomes can be combined with infrastructure development.
“This study will measure the long-term impact of this unique facility,” she said.
“Our goal is to learn how the combination of easy access to state-of-the-art fitness facilities, health and wellness services under one roof benefits the health of a community.
“The information gathered through this research will help the council evaluate future initiatives to improve the health and well-being of our community, especially those in our community who are disadvantaged for a variety of reasons.”
By completing the survey, residents can also enter the draw to win either a $200 Coles voucher, a six-month membership to Brimbank Leisure Centers or 10 family swim passes.
The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and is open until June 30.
