AOD Catchment Based Planning
North & West Metropolitan Melbourne Region

This document should be read in conjunction with the extensive analyses detailed in the 2015 Catchment Based Plans (2015 document).

What is Catchment Based Planning?

Catchment Based Planning (CBP) is a systematic way to understand our local communities and the services they require.  Catchment planners are based locally, and work to understand the AOD service needs of our catchments; ensuring that AOD treatment services are: in the right locations; delivering the right mix of services; and coordinated effectively with the other services our clients need.
This information has been designed to inform AOD and other community service providers, organisations responsible for health service commissioning, as well as service managers and planners for project scoping and other decisions relating to service provision.
