Access and Inclusion Plan

The City of Bayswater's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan - 2016-2020 helps us make sure that people with disability in our community have equity of access to services, facilities, functions and information provided by the City.

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

Why is the City of Bayswater Access and Inclusion Plan important to people with disability?

The City of Bayswater Access and Inclusion Plan guides our organisation to remove barriers that prevent equity of access and inclusion for people who use Council owned and managed facilities and services.

The redevelopment of 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. 

Who can provide feedback to inform the Access and Inclusion Plan review?

We invite feedback from people with a lived experience of disability, their families, carers, support workers (paid), disability service providers, residents, local businesses and the wider community. Your views are important as they will assist us to better understand opportunities to remove access and inclusion barriers when using Council services, buildings, facilities, information, complaint mechanisms or attending events and consultations.
