Why doesn’t the Access and Inclusion Strategy outline specific actions or projects?
The Access and Inclusion Strategy provides a broader outlook and operates over a longer timeframe. Projects and actions are identified in annual program planning.
How will Council determine what actions will be undertaken to achieve access and inclusion outcomes?
In order to be efficient, Council will seek out and use opportunities within existing work plans and major projects to achieve access and inclusion outcomes. To ensure that outcomes are achieved within existing projects and budget allocations, some suggestions for action may not be prioritised. Suggestions will be considered in longer term planning, either through on-going project schedules such as street upgrades and asset renewal or a new project bid.
How do I find out what has already been achieved?
The Administration reports regularly to Council, through quarterly and annual business plan reports which include progress on actions related to disability planning.
Since the endorsement of the Access and Inclusion Strategy, a process for showcasing access and inclusion planning was introduced. Four ‘case study’ projects are selected annually and supported through review by the Access and Inclusion Advisory Panel, targeted community engagement and partnership opportunities with the disability sector. The first four ‘case studies’ will be published online in July 2014.
What is the Access and Inclusion Advisory Panel?
The role of the Access and Inclusion Advisory Panel is to provide strategic, expert and impartial advice to Council on the development, implementation, monitoring and review of policies, strategies, projects and plans with the aim to advance the inclusion of people with disability. The Panel has six individual members and six organisational members. Membership details are available on the Council website:
The group meet at least four times a year. A selection process was undertaken in early 2013 and over 40 applications were received for the individual positions. The term of the Panel is 2 years with a right to continue for an additional 1 year.
Future vacancies for the Panel will be advertised through Council publications, and networks including the State Disability Register which is administered by Disability SA.
