Theme 2: Access and safety

Strategic objective: Boroondara’s places and spaces are safe and easy to access and use for people with disability.

What we will do

  • New Council major capital works and renewals including facilities, playgrounds, parks and shopping precincts, incorporate Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 and the Australian Standards, and where possible incorporate universal design principles.
  • Continue to improve accessibility on paths of travel within parks and open spaces, as well as streets and roads through maintaining and upgrading features, such as accessible parking, tactile indicators, kerb access, signage, line markings and infrastructure, such as seating.

What we want to achieve

  • Improved safety and access to Council’s facilities and open spaces by people with disability.
