AC­CESS FOR ALL

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

ON be­half of the City of South Perth Res­i­dents' As­so­ci­a­tion, I say how happy we are that peo­ple in a wheel­chair now have ac­cess to the An­gelo Street Post Of­fice.

For some years, peo­ple have been cry­ing out for a ramp be­cause they could not ne­go­ti­ate the large step giv­ing ac­cess to the build­ing.

Australia Post, along with the new own­ers and the past own­ers, put to­gether the plan for Coun­cil with per­mis­sion from Tel­stra (which was granted in two days) to go ahead with the ramp and raise the floor level in the en­try to come into line with the Post Of­fice floor.

South Perth Coun­cil granted that per­mis­sion im­me­di­ately.

We thank Australia Post, the new owner and the past owner and Tel­stra for mak­ing the en­try to our Post Of­fice avail­able to ev­ery­one.

My el­dest son has to use a wheel­chair, so I have been par­tic­u­larly con­cerned about this is­sue.

We would also like to wel­come the new own­ers to South Perth. CECILIA BROOKE, chair­woman, City of South Perth Res­i­dents' As­so­ci­a­tion.
