About

About: 

The Access and Inclusion Plan 2016-2019 and the Ageing Well in Golden Plains Shire Strategy and Action Plan 2012-2016 are currently being reviewed to develop an Active Ageing and Inclusion Plan 2020-2024. The Plan will outline the actions that will assist Council to build a more supportive, inclusive and accessible community for people of all abilities and older people.

Feedback from the survey and the community consultation sessions will be considered and used to inform the development of the Active Ageing and Inclusion Plan 2020-2024 in line with the Council Plan’s (2017-2021) strategic directions and priorities.

The Draft plan will be available for the community to provide further feedback in December. Feedback will be able to be submitted electronically or in hard copy. 

Golden Plains Shire is committed to enhancing the opportunities it provides to the community to be involved in Council’s decision making process and so, a range of opportunities will be available for community members to provide feedback and share their experiences and ideas. The Access and Inclusion Plan 2016-2019 and the Ageing Well in Golden Plains Shire Strategy and Action Plan 2012-2016 are currently being reviewed to develop an Active Ageing and Inclusion Plan 2020-2024. 

The Plan will outline the actions that will assist Council to build a more supportive, inclusive and accessible community for people of all abilities and older people.
