Access and Inclusion Plan

Access and Inclusion Plan

Kalgoorlie-Boulder is a diverse community with a wide range of needs, and the City is committed to fostering independence for those of all abilities, ensuring everybody can engage in everyday services as well as actively participating in the fantastic opportunities the City offers.

The aim of this Access and Inclusion Plan is to ensure services and facilities can be made more open, inclusive and accessible for everyone, and we have reached out to all sectors of the community to make sure everyone has had the opportunity to provide meaningful input into the direction for the new Plan, which aims to incorporate contemporary practises that exceed minimum compliance requirements.

As a City, we aim to provide public spaces that facilitate a diverse range of activities and strengthen social bonds within the community, and deliver the community better connectivity with the rest of Australia and the world. This Plan will guide us on our way forward to delivering access and inclusion for all.
