Have Your Say: Disability Action Plan
Development of the Shire’s Disability Action Plan 2018-22 is currently under way.
We have sought community feedback since November 2017 - through face-to-face Have Your Say sessions, a survey, and a community forum - gathering information on how the Shire can work in partnership to enhance accessibility and inclusion for people with a disability.
The draft plan was presented to Council in May and August, and placed on public exhibition from 15 August to 14 September 2018.
Feedback is now being collated, and the final plan will go to Council for endorsement on 9 October 2018.
Disability action plans enable councils to develop policies and practices that lead to greater participation of all residents; show leadership, vision and innovation that can lead to increased community cohesion and economic prosperity.
The development of the DAP is overseen by the Shire's All Abilities Consultative Committee.
