Thank you for your interest in this project. This consultation has now closed

City of Port Phillip's Accessibility Action Plan 2022-24 is our commitment to improve the equitable participation and inclusion for people with disability within our community. Our vision for this plan is to strengthen the Port Phillip community as a place in which people with disability feel valued and have a positive sense of belonging.

In July and August we asked for your feedback to help inform our draft Accessibility Action Plan 2022-24.

What's next

We need a bit more time

We recently consulted with you in July/August 2021 to help shape actions for the new Accessibility Action Plan. This process highlighted the need to undertake further engagement to explore accessibility and disability inclusion issues before developing a draft Accessibility Action Plan.
