On 21 June 2017, Council endorsed its 2017-2021 Disability Inclusion Action Plan, articulating a clear set of priority actions aimed at enhancing access and participation for all over the next four years. The Plan has been developed in consultation with over 340 internal and external stakeholders, and provides Council with an opportunity to assist residents and visitors of all abilities to actively engage with, and contribute to, the diverse fabric of the Shire.
While community satisfaction with Council’s services in relation to access and inclusion overall was strong, employment and infrastructure rated as the two key priority areas for enhancements. The consultation process highlighted the barriers that still remain for people with disability and their carers when accessing information and services, and when getting around our community, and based on the feedback and ideas received, the Plan sets out strategies to address those barriers. Council’s Access Working Group will support the implementation of the Plan, and we look forward to continuing our conversations with the community, and in particular people with disability and their carers, in order to maximise the potential that this Plan provides.
To accommodate a range of users, the Plan has been made available in both a full and easy read version as well as a text only version which can all be viewed using the links below.
