Access and Inclusion Plan

City of Bayswater Access and Inclusion Plan 2020 – 2024

The Access and Inclusion Plan 2020 – 2024 builds upon the work already achieved by the City in its efforts to improve physical access to buildings and facilities, ensure people with disability can access services and events, are provided with information in their preferred format on request, can participate in consultations and provide feedback to Council as well as continuing to progress employment initiatives.

The Plan benefits not only people with disability, but also the wider community, including older people and parents with prams.

The Access and Inclusion Plan is available in hard copy and in alternative formats, such as large print, upon request from people with disability. 

An Easy English version of the Access and Inclusion Plan is now available to support people with disability and those with low English literacy.

Please contact the City to request a copy of the Access and Inclusion Plan, by contacting Community Development on 9272 0658 or email inclusion@bayswater.wa.gov.au

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the City of Bayswater need to have a Plan to improve access and inclusion?

The Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) is a legislative requirement under the Western Australian Disability Services Act (1993) (the Act). This requires all local governments to review their DAIPs at least every five years. The Act requires local governments to lodge their Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) to the Department of Communities and at the end of each financial year to provide a report on DAIP implementation. 

Achievements that support access and inclusion are reported in the Annual Report which is available on the City's website at www.bayswater.wa.gov.au

The Disability Services Act 1993 requires not only City staff but also agents and contractors engaged by the City to deliver a service to the public to ensure that they take the needs of people with disability into account, in a manner consistent with the Access and Inclusion Plan.

Our new Access and Inclusion Plan 2020 - 2024 will assist the City to progress its commitment to identify and remove barriers which may include but not be limited to physical access, attitudinal, or practices that do not provide the same opportunities as other members in the community to participate.
