Woodville Independents recognise that people with a disability have a right to quality facilities and services that enable them to live and fully participate in their communities.

They must be included in council planning and regulatory actvities relating to infrastructure and council / community planning.

I believe that we must continue to develop a local 'Disability Discrimination Act Action Plan' as well as encourage improved physical access to public facilities, and ensure that local pedestrian networks are accessable to all people in the community.

Council's Access Committee is a vehicle by which new standards can be developed and progress upon their implementation monitored.
