Public Exhibition - Draft Disability Action Plan 2014-2018 - Calls for Community Feedback

Council has developed a draft Disability Action Plan (the Plan) to clearly articulate council’s role in improving the physical environment within the Lithgow area for residents with a disability.

In order to do this we aim to bring together all Council functions and programs to ensure that our facilities, services and programs do not exclude people with a disability or treat them less favourably than other people. Our Plan will also guide us in avoiding and eliminating practices that discriminate against people with a disability.

The Plan will also assist Council to meet its obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, as well as its commitments in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.

In accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, the following outcomes are set out in the Plan:

• Reduce barriers that prevent persons with a disability accessing goods, services and facilities
• Reduce barriers that prevent persons with a disability obtaining and maintaining employment
• Promote and raise awareness about issues related to disability within Council and the broader community; and
• Achieve tangible changes in attitudes and practices which discriminate against persons with a disability.

The Plan is an active document which will guide the work of Council over the next four years. It focuses on the services and facilities provided and owned by Council. It also aims to raise awareness of disability issues among Councillors and staff in regard to Council practices and procedures.

Copies of the draft Disability Access Plan are available from Viktoria Gulabovski on 6354 9999 or viktoria.gulabovski@lithgow.nsw.gov.au, Council’s web site or may be collected from the Lithgow Library and Learning Centre on Main Street.
