Regional Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

Local Government plays an important role in creating an environment which is inclusive of all people, through its planning role and also through its involvement in community activities and provision of a range of services.

Commitment 6.2 of the Barossa Light and Lower Northern Regional Public Health and Wellbeing Plan highlights the need to support accessibility for all through Council services and facilities. The key actions highlighted within Commitment 6.2 include:

  • Implement Council Disability Discrimination Act Plans.
  • Investigate the opportunity for a regional Disability Discrimination Act Plan.
  • Integrate access considerations into urban, asset and community planning.

The Adelaide Plains Council, The Barossa Council, the Town of Gawler and the Light Regional Council have committed to a regional approach in developing a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.

This is the first Disability Access and Inclusion Plan to be developed at a regional level in South Australia.

Access for people with a disability is a legislative requirement under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. The Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against a person with a disability.

The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 encourages everyone to be involved in implementing the Act and to share in the overall benefits to the community and the economy that flow from participation by the widest range of people.
