The city is renewing its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP). The DAIP aims to guide the actions and activities for improved disability access and inclusion between 2017 and 2022. The strategies within the DAIP can be categorised into seven outcome areas.

Outcome 1: People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the services of, and any event by, a public authority.

Outcome 2: People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the buildings and other facilities of a public authority.

Outcome 3: People with disability receive information from a public authority in a format that will enable them to access the information as readily as other people are able to access it.

Outcome 4: People with disability receive the same level and quality of service from the staff of a public authority as other people receive from the staff of that public authority.

Outcome 5: People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to make complaints to a public authority.

Outcome 6: People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to participate in any public consultation by a public authority.

Outcome 7: People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to obtain and maintain employment with a public authority.

To ensure that the plan is representative of the community's needs and desires the city is seeking your input.

Following council endorsement, phase two of the consultation will seek community input via an online survey on the draft DAIP 2017-2022.
