Council adopted its Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) Action Plan in March 2007.
The Plan allows Council to review its practices and programs and to identify the possible sources of discrimination (intentional or unintentional) against people with a disability. In doing so, Council can remove barriers to access for people with disabilities and have practical actions to further improve its services and facilities which allows residents, visitors and workers with disabilities to move about our community and to access services and facilities with ease and dignity. The Plan is a result of an extensive process of research, consultation and documentation. The Lane Cove Council Access Committee has also provided significant input and assistance into the plan.
The plan has been also been lodged with the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC).
