The Town seeks your feedback to assist in the development of a revised Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) to be implemented over the next four years.

The DAIP sets out the Town’s commitment to making our community a welcoming and inclusive place for everyone to enjoy.

People experience difficulties accessing information, services, buildings, facilities and events on a daily basis. For example, an automatic door assists both a parent pushing a pram and a person in a wheelchair. While age is not a disability, the incidence of disability increases with age. As a result, older people are more likely to have a disability and have greater access needs.

The aim of the DAIP is to provide a framework to improve access for all people in the community in relation to the following areas:

  • Services and events
  • Buildings and facilities
  • Information
  • Customer service
  • Complaints
  • Community engagement
  • Employment

We welcome your ideas on how we can make these areas more accessible for everyone and we appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback.

The Town is currently working on the draft Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, which will be available for public comments shortly.
