Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017-2021
We strive to address the barriers that prevent people with a disability from fully participating in the Blue Mountains community.
Council's Access Advisory Committee commenced in 2015, following the NSW Government adopting the Disability Inclusion Act (2014) and bringing changes in responsibility for Local Government.
Under this Act, Local Government is required to produce a Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) setting out measures on how people with a disability can access general support services and fully participate in the community.
