Abstract: Public health is a matter of concern at all levels of government. The effective management of public health starts with local government. It is at this grass roots level that a proactive approach to potential public health issues can benefit many citizens by the application of simple remedies that can have a positive health outcome. For example, the fencing of backyard swimming pools in recent years has no doubt saved young lives. Another public health issue that needs addressing is public safety in relation to motorised wheel chairs, commonly referred to as 'gophers'. Local government needs to be proactive in the maintenance of safe public spaces and implementing appropriate legal regulation in the interests of public health.
