Disability Access

Disability Access is access to a facility that is suitable for use by people with restricted mobility or any other disability that makes it difficult for them to access the facility. Many Councils have or have had programs in place to upgrade older facilities to ensure they comply with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. These programs often referred to to 'Disability Access', 'DDA Access' or 'DDA Compliance' programs.

Examples of disability access improvement works include:

  • The provision of ramps and/or lifts for people with mobility issues making it difficult for them to use stairs.
  • The replacement of heavy manual doors with automatic doors.
  • The installation of tactile ground surface indicators.
