Access and Inclusion Plan 2018-2021

The City of Belmont is committed to being as accessible, inclusive and welcoming as possible to everyone whilst offering the opportunity for everyone to contribute, participate and enjoy life in their local community.

The draft Access and Inclusion Plan for 2018-2021 has been developed after engagement with Belmont residents through a number of community forums held across the City and an online survey.

The draft plan has now been released for public comment from Friday, 1 December 2017 to Friday, 5 January 2018.

You can view the Plan below. Please submit your feedback in the discussion below or alternatively to Helen.O’Sullivan@belmont.wa.gov.au

The Draft Access and Inclusion Plan demonstrates the City’s commitment to achieving equitable access and inclusion for everyone.

In its current form the Draft Access and Inclusion Plan is a little too general / vague. The strategies listed lack the necessary detail for implementation and performance measurement.

I suggest including key performance indicators and/or an implementation matrix to supplement the listed outcomes and strategies. If an implementation matrix is developed it should include actions, lead responsibility, timeframes and measurable targets.

The below dot points represent some additional strategies in the planning, development and infrastructure realm that could be incorporated into the Access and Inclusion Plan. The strategies listed below could be further refined by including timeframes and referencing particular documents (e.g. City of Belmont Local Planning Scheme, City of Belmont Local Housing Strategy etc.).
• Include innovative provisions including codes, standards and guidelines in our plans that will encourage universal design to improve access and inclusion for everyone.

• Review the policies and standards we use in the assessment of development applications so they reflect current good practice in providing for an accessible and inclusive built environment.

• Provide draft plans and community consultation materials in accessible formats.

• Use new media and communications technologies to engage a wide range of individuals in planning processes.
• Advocate, where appropriate, for the Western Australian Government to enhance access and inclusion provisions of relevant state development policies, codes and regulations.

• Provide induction and refresher training for relevant development assessment staff with a focus on understanding the significance of relevant provisions and conditions for people with access concerns and to encourage them to be rigorous in their interpretation and application.
