Standing for:Kaipara District Council
Position: Councillor - Dargaville
Major issues would be accessibility to Council Services. eg parking, footpaths, public toilets, libraries. Would like to encourage your patrons to use the process of making submissions to the annual plan to draw attention to the special needs of your members. If it is not in the plan it will not happen. In council I would be happy to support any reasonable request to see it included in the plan.

people with an impairment make up 25% of the population so it would be “reasonable” if they could access their communities, transport etc if this is included from the beginning in plans then it would save the council money in the long run.

I agree Anita, not only do 1 in 5 members of our communities have a disability but our general population is ageing.  The ‘special needs’ of the disabled community, if addressed would ensure our communities were accessible to ALL members including people with disabilities, parents useing pushchairs and older people who also can have mobility, strength and balance problems.  If all our councils embraced universal accessible design when planning and took into account the needs of all it’s citizens when maintaining it’s infrastructure; our communities would better be able to be accessed by all.
