About the Plan
Disability Access and Inclusion Plans provide a means of ensuring that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as other people to access services, community events, buildings and facilities, information, consultative and complaint resolution processes.
The City of Melville's current Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) was adopted in July 2007 and provides a planned approach to progressively improve access to community services provided by the City of Melville.
The plan builds upon the work already achieved in improving physical access, raising awareness through training and events, developing specific programs for people with disabilities, encouraging inclusive programmes and increased communications with people with disabilities within the City.
The DAIP is available online in both PDF and Word format. If you would like a copy of the plan in another format please contact the Community Development Officer – Social Inclusion on 9364 0864 or email here.
Agents and contactors utilised by the City of Melville are also required to report against the DAIP outcomes. The contractor reporting sheet along with examples of how to achieve the outcomes are available to download from this page.
