Access and Inclusion Plan Survey

Hawkesbury City Council is committed to eliminating barriers which prevent residents and visitors from participating fully in community and civic life.

Council has adopted an Access and Inclusion Policy to provide a practical framework by which Council, the community and business can work together to remove these barriers over time.

Council is currently in the process of developing a new Access and Inclusion Plan. As part of this process we are seeking comment from the community about their experience of living in the Hawkesbury.

Your contribution will help us deliver strategies, timelines and indicators for the new plan; allowing the Hawkesbury to continue to prosper both socially and economically.

To complete this survey visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HYCNDZK. The survey will close 5pm Friday 1st June 2012.

For further information on the Access and Inclusion Plan Survey, please contact Council’s Community Programs Coordinator on 4560 4502.
