Disability Inclusion Action Plan
The preparation of a Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) by all NSW local councils is a requirement of the Disability Inclusion Act 2014 (the Act).
Kyogle Council’s stand alone DIAP (click here to download the DIAP) compliments the Council’s existing operational plans and policies. Key plans include its Community Strategic Plan and the Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP)
The DIAP addresses strategies and actions affecting four key focus areas:
- Attitudes and behaviours
- Liveable communities
- Systems and processes
The Council established an informal Reference Group to assist in the preparation of specific strategies and actions contained in the DIAP. The Reference Group consisted of State agencies, disability service providers, people living with disabilities, and Council representatives.
Council’s PAMP was developed to assist Kyogle Council to effectively plan and meet the access needs of the Kyogle Local Government Area (LGA) through the provision of accessible facilities for people with disabilities or mobility restrictions. The Mobility Access Audit identifies what access barriers exist in Council buildings and open spaces. Kyogle Council’s “Mobility Access Audit” (click here to download) is founded on social justice principles.
