The Shire of Halls Creek, as a local government authority, has a responsibility to ensure that people who live, work and recreate within the Shire are able to access all its functions, facilities and services provided to the community.

The Shire of Halls Creek is currently reviewing its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan and has contracted E-QUAL Disability Consultants to assist.

 The Shire  would like to hear from members of the community (individuals and organisations) about their vision for an accessible and inclusive Shire. We value your input into the review process and development of a new five year Access and Inclusion Plan for the Shire of Halls Creek.

 The updated plan is a document that will enable the Shire to work towards creating an accessible and inclusive community for all, including people with disability, seniors, people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds and other groups within the Shire.
