Key Facts

The City's Universal Access Improvement Program focuses on improving accessibility to buildings and facilities to current National Construction Code (NCC), Building Code of Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards. 

The project scope is to deliver a prioritised programme of adjustments and improvements to the City’s buildings and facilities to support an inclusive community where all people have an equal ability to access City facilities.

Locations

  • Jenolan Way - disabled toilet and pathways.
  • Kingsway dog park - pathways.
  • Ashby Animal Care Centre - access improvements.
  • New footpaths to improve accessibility to playgrounds at Nanatee, Donatello and Huntington parks.
  • An audit for new footpaths to improve further accessibility to playgrounds.
  • Replacement of entry door to Phil Renkin Centre, Two Rocks.
  • Installation of sliding door at Two Rocks library.

Works vary depending on the facility being targeted but are likely to include improvements to toilets, doors, access paths, signage and parking bays. In some cases structural alterations or even extensions may be required to accommodate larger access requirements and/or cubicle sizes.

To date, projects have been identified through internal operational assessments and also from customer and user requests. Requests are considered and prioritised for inclusion in the relevant budget year.
