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 yearly in the City's Annual Report available at www.bayswater.wa.gov.au/city-and-council/management-and-governance/quarterly-and-annual-reports
The Disability Services Act 1993 requires not only City staff but agents and contractors engaged by the City to deliver a service to the public to ensures they take the needs of people with disability into account, in a manner consistent with the Access and Inclusion Plan.

The City of Bayswater Access and Inclusion Plan 2020 – 2024 guides our organisation to plan for better access and inclusion across seven legislated outcome areas related to services and events, buildings and facilities, information, customer service, complaint mechanisms, consultation processes and employment.
The Access and Inclusion plan benefits people with disability, but also the community as a whole, including older people, parents with prams and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
