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.

By completing the survey you will be providing the Town with valuable information to improve access and develop a more inclusive community.

All participants will be eligible to go in the running to win a $300 gift voucher.
