Griffith City Council is taking submissions from the community on how to improve disability inclusion across the town.
The 2017 Disability Action Plan has been placed on exhibition for 42 days, with council inviting members of the community to make suggestions on how it can be improved and updated.
Council's director of economic and organisational development Shireen Donaldson says any member of the community is invited to make comments.
"Any person is able to make a submission," Mrs Donaldson said.
"There will be an online form on the council website. They can email council, they can ring council, and we have a regular council cafe event and we'll be talking about it there."
We are looking for community input into what else the community perceives as missing for disabled people.- Shireen Donaldson, Griffith City Council
Council will also be speaking directly with members of the disabled community, carers, and agencies that work with people with disabilities.
"They're the people that are using the servcies so we need to know their first-hand experiences," Mrs Donaldson said.
"They're sometimes a sector of the community that doesn't have a large voice and we really want to tap into that voice.
"That's why we need to go to the places such as Post School Options ... they're very keen to be consulted."
The renewed disability inclusion plan will look to build on the work council has done since 2017 when the last plan was finalised.
"Since that plan we have worked really hard to create inclusive spaces like Enticknap Park and community gardens ... we've relocated the liberty swing to be more inclusive," Mrs Donaldson said.
"We've looked at the way we do disabled toilets, and the aquatic centre has a fantastic automated change disabled toilet and adult change facilities.
"So we are a lot more conscious but we are looking for community input into what else the community perceives as missing for disabled people."
The 2017 plan was meant to be reviewed last year, to follow guidelines set out by the State Government that Disability Inclusion Access Plans are reviewed every four years.
According to Mrs Donaldson, the review was pushed back to 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We felt it was more meaningful to do the consultation and review the plan at the same time, rather than us reviewing the plan first on our own and making assumptions," she said.
The reviewed Disability Inclusion Action Plan is expected to be brought before council by June 30.
