Why is the Plan being updated?

    Bellingen Shire Council is required by the Disability Inclusion Act 2014 (DIA 2014) to undertake disability inclusion action planning (DIAP) by 1 July 2017.  Council currently has a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan in place which was developed in 2014. The new plan will require additional consultation and the re-formatting of the plan into four key focus areas:

    1.  Developing positive community attitudes and behaviours

    2.  Creating liveable communities

    3.  Supporting access to meaningful employment

    4.  Improving access to services through better systems and processes

    Additional consultation will be undertaken with the community around these 4 focus areas and especially members of our community with additional needs.

    What if I don’t want to do the survey online?

    Paper copies of the survey are available at the Customer Service Counter at Bellingen Shire Council and the Dorrigo, Bellingen and Urunga branch libraries.
