Access and Inclusion

Our Commitment

At the City of Busselton, we encourage diversity and are committed to creating an accessible, inclusive, and welcoming community for people of all ages and abilities. We will continue to explore and investigate opportunities to remove or reduce barriers to participation in a wide range of activities and functions, with the intention of making a difference in the quality of life for people with disability who live, work, and spend time in our community.

Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

The City of Busselton’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2018 – 2022 (DAIP) focuses on delivering a friendly and safe community with a strong community spirit. The DAIP assists the City to determine the strategies needed to enhance and promote services that facilitate opportunity and inclusion for people with disability in our community. Local governments are required to have a DAIP and review it every five years in accordance with the Disability Services Act (1993) which was amended in 2004 to include this requirement.

Our Disability Access and Inclusion Plan is available in alternative formats upon request.
