City of Marion Access Action Plan
In response to the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act (1992), the City of Marion Access Plan was produced in consultation with all Departments of Council, some Government Agencies and stakeholders from the local community.
The Access Action Plan develops a strategy for addressing and changing particular Council practices that may result in discrimination against any person with a disability.
Actions to increase accessibility to our community are being progressed in the areas of Policy, Information and customer service, Open space, Facilities, Physical services, Building and Planning, Communication and Training.
The Access Action Plan is an active document that will respond to current knowledge available and therefore be regularly updated. It is intended to be an educative tool for the community and Council Staff. The Access Action Plan is an empowering document that is expected to change as Council further develops processes, knowledge and skills in the practical implications of the Disability Discrimination Act (1992).
