Disability Action Plan - Have Your Say

Disability Action Plan Banner


Golden Plains Shire Council is asking for community feedback on new and updated objectives for the Disability Action Plan 2025-2029 (the Plan).

The Plan provides Council with a framework to create a more inclusive and accessible place to live, work and play. The Plan’s focus is to ensure we are supporting people with disability and their carers to be fully involved in community life.

The purpose of a Disability Action Plan is to set out actions to help local governments reduce and remove barriers for people with disability to foster a more accessible and inclusive community.

We are also looking to align the Plan with:

  • Community Vision 2040
  • Council Plan 2025-2029
  • Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2025-2029
  • State Disability Action Plan 2022-2026 

Council has been consulting the community through community workshops and the Active, Ageing and Inclusion Advisory Committee throughout March. Community members are also encouraged to contribute to the development of the Disability Action Plan through a Have Your Say survey which opens on Friday 22 March and closes on Thursday 18 April 2024.

Council aims to ensure the plan aligns with community aspirations and the needs of people with disability and their families within Golden Plains Shire.
