The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is calling for feedback on its updated Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.

As part of its review of the 2020-2025 Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP), the City is seeking community input on how services and facilities can be made more open, inclusive and accessible for everyone.

City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said the City had a requirement to develop and maintain a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, and he encouraged the whole community to contribute to the discussion.

“There are real challenges and difficulties faced by our residents and visitors when accessing every day services, information and events,” Mr Walker said.

“The feedback from the community will contribute to making the DAIP’s objectives a valuable guide for improving the City’s accessibility for everyone. As a precaution, and due to the vulnerable and at risk status of many of the stakeholders, we won’t be holding group engagement sessions, however our officers are happy to take direct feedback on the plan.” 

The current Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, a community feedback survey and further information can be accessed by visiting the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder website www.ckb.wa.gov.au/DAIP2020, by emailing mailbag@ckb.wa.gov.au or by phoning 9021 9600.

Hard copies of the survey will be available from Monday 18 May 2020 at the City’s Administration Building, the William Grundt Memorial Library, the Eastern Goldfields Community Centre and the Kalgoorlie Town Hall Customer Service Centre.
