GREATER integration of the dis­abled in coun­cil ac­tiv­ity will con­tinue with the adop­tion of a new dis­abil­ity ac­cess in­clu­sion plan (DAIP) at Clare­mont Coun­cil last month.

“It’s not just phys­i­cal ac­cess, it’s also peo­ple who may have hear­ing is­sues, so we’ll be look­ing at our com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­ce­dures,” act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Les Crich­ton said. Clare­mont’s third DAIP since 1995 was the re­sult of a re­view of the abil­i­ties of the coun­cil’s build­ings and ser­vices to pro­vide for all forms of dis­abil­ity be­tween June and Novem­ber last year.

The re­view re­sulted in 121 pub­lic re­sponses.
