Accessibility and inclusion in the City of Melville

The City of Melville is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive and accessible City. We have undertaken to use our knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the Internet, to develop a web site that is clear and simple for everybody to use.

Access and Inclusion Plan 2012–2017

The City has developed the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017 which addresses:

  • Access to the City’s services and events
  • Access to buildings and facilities owned by the City of Melville
  • Receiving information in appropriate formats
  • A high standard of service for all people
  • Making complaints
  • Participating in public consultation
  • Employment opportunities

This plan encourages all contractors and businesses in the City to move towards applying the principles of access and inclusion, making the City of Melville truly accessible to the whole community.
