A roll­out mat will en­able wheel­chair ac­cess from the beach view­ing area to the hard sand so that peo­ple in wheel­chairs can gain ac­cess to the wa­ter.

Con­struc­tion is sched­uled to be­gin in the first quar­ter of the new fi­nan­cial year and once com­pleted.

It will com­ple­ment Coun­cil’s Ac­cess Dou­glas Di­rec­tory which de­tails all of the com­mu­nity as­sets avail­able to peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity.

The Ac­cess Dou­glas Di­rec­tory is avail­able on Coun­cil’s web­site.
