Disability access a key focus in Naracoorte's CBD

DISABILITY access in Naracoorte's town centre remains a key focus for Naracoorte Lucindale Council.

A disability working group has been meeting to discuss issues relating to making Naracoorte more disabled friendly.

After the working group met on July 21 a number of issues were brought to light.

Group member Daniel Willsmore presented a number of access issues within the town's central business area, including kerb ramps, footpaths and car parking. 

Some of these items required minor works to make areas compliant, others required significant upgrading or replacement.

From this presentation it was clear the group needed to concentrate on the town hall, identified as a key focus point for the project.

The working group asked the council to look at two items in regards to cost and design.

They were a ramp in front of the building and a raised accessible car park out the front of the hall.

The working group will further determine what kerb ramps also need to be looked at for upgrade/maintenance subject to budget allocations.
