In late 2014, Council adopted an accessibility policy to ensure equity and access for people with disabilities are a priority in the work it does.
The guiding principles for this policy are:
- We recognise the diverse needs of people with disabilities and acknowledges that people with disabilities are experts in their own experience.
- We recognise the need to provide all people with equity of opportunity and access. We have a regulatory function to ensure that quality standards and safety are maintained and barriers to access are removed.
- We will act with integrity to maintain an ongoing partnership with people with disabilities built on mutual trust and respect.
- We will actively involve people with disabilities in decisions that directly affect their living in the District.
