Access and Inclusion

Project Overview

Creating an accessible community, a place where everyone belongs

We asked for your help in letting us know how the Shire of Mundaring can improve access and inclusion across the shire. Your shared suggestions and response to our survey has supported us in developing an Access and Inclusion Informing Strategy 2022 to 2026.

Implementation of this strategy will support our commitment to ensuring our community is welcoming, accessible and inclusive for all.

The next stage is to design the Strategy with input from the Shire Inclusion and Disability Access Advisory Group.

View the Strategy (pre-design) via the document library.

As a public authority in Western Australia the Shire is required to plan for people with disability under the Disability Services Act 1993.

Currently the Shire has a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017-21 which is under review and we are working towards development of an Access and Inclusion Informing Strategy (AIIS) 2022-26.

Development of the AIIS is in line with priorities within the Shire Strategic Community Plan:

     1.  Community

          1.3  Everyone belongs

                 1.3.7 Ensure Shire facilities and infrastructure are accessible for people with disability.

The Shire’s role and responsibility under the Disability Services Act 1993 is to:

  • Lodge a plan that covers a period of maximum five years with the Department of Communities and maintain a current plan;
  • Include actions that address the seven Outcome areas listed in the Act;
  • Consultation with internal and external stakeholders during the review and development of a plan;
  • Implement actions within the plan; and
  • Report annually to Department of Communities on progress of the plan.
