NEW PLAN: Port Lincoln Council seek to identify and address access and inclusion barriers to support all people with disability to participate in Port Lincoln life with dignity.

People living with disability, their carers and families, support workers and service providers are being urged to have their say on a newly developed Disability Action and Inclusion Plan for Port Lincoln, launched by the council.

Currently in its early phase, the plan seeks to identify and address access and inclusion barriers to support people with disability to participate in Port Lincoln life with dignity.

The initiative further falls in line with the Disability Inclusion Act 2018 SA.

According to Mayor Brad Flaherty, council is committed to supporting a community that is accessible and inclusive for everyone.

"...this is a key focus of our Draft Strategic Directions Plan currently out for public consultation," he said.

A short, targeted survey has been prepared and the council encourages those identified as a person with disability, a family member, friend or carer of a person with disability to complete the survey available via their website.

"The development of the plan will include measures and strategies to support people with disability and enable council to provide better access to built environs, events and facilities along with addressing specific needs of people with disability in our community," Mayor Flaherty said.

A link will also be provided through the council's Facebook page.

All survey responses will be anonymous and must be received by 5pm on Thursday, November 5.

Mayor Flaherty added that further consultation will be undertaken and involve the broader community once the plan has been developed from the initial feedback.

Hard copies of the survey will be made available at the council administration office and Port Lincoln Library.

Those requiring assistance to complete the survey are urged to contact the council on 8621 2300.
