Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Community engagement for this project has now concluded.

Following on from previous discussions the draft Disability Strategy 2014 - 2018 has been developed and outlines seven key focus areas which will help council become more disability friendly.

These seven priority areas, known as “7 Big Ideas” were identified by people with a disability, their carers and disability organisations and are as follows:
  1. Give better access to community facilities that are run by Council;
  2. People with a disability will be able to “have your say” about Council decisions
  3. Council information is easier to read, get and understand;
  4. Council will do more to include people with a disability to be able to join in with the community;
  5. The Access Sub Committee and Council encourages shops and businesses to be disability friendly;
  6. Council advocates to State and Federal Government, developers,businesses and community; and
  7. Council is a disability friendly place to work and volunteer.

To find out more and have your say, have a look at the 7 Big Ideas and make a submission by clicking on the tab below.

    Give better access to Council facilities including: libraries, parks, sporting ovals, swimming pools, beaches, council offices. community halls, airport, Glasshouse, car parking, cycleways and footpaths, playground and other Council run outdoor areas.

    (Note: Access means buildings and places in the community will be: easier to get into, easier to move around in and safer)

    A community where people with a disability can take part and have a say like everybody else about Council plans and issues that are important.

    (eg. The Access Committee is a group of 12 people who meet regularly with Council to highlight areas that need to be improved for better access)
