Shire adopts new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

THE Shire of Mundaring has adopted a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2017-2021.

Shire President David Lavell said the document was designed to guide the removal of access and inclusion barriers experienced by people with disability in our community.

"In line with legal requirements under the Disability Services Act 1993 the Shire has recently reviewed its DAIP," he said.

"The Shire is committed to making the DAIP 2017-2021 effective and relevant.

"We want to make our community even more inclusive and welcoming for people with disability and their families, friends and carers."

There are 72 strategies are outlined in the DAIP 2017-2021to combat recurring issues faced by people with disability.

"Our strategies include considering people who need calm and quiet areas when planning events and layouts of outdoor spaces," Cr Lavell said.

"We will also continue Think Before You Park. This is a promotion to raise awareness on access and inclusion barriers created when parking/placing vehicles, bins and advertising boards on footpaths."

DAIP 2017-2021 can be viewed on the Shire website's on the Access and Inclusion page under Community.
