 Disability Access and Inclusion

Disability Access and Inclusion Plan



The City of Belmont is committed to ensuring that its community is accessible and inclusive for all residents, including those with disabilities, their families and carers. The City acknowledges that people with disability have a right to access services, buildings and events and to be treated with dignity and respect, which all people need in order to feel a sense of belonging and to live healthy productive lives.


The City's current Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017 is soon to expire and we are commencing the development of a new plan for 2018-2022. We recognise the importance of consulting people from across the community, from those living with a disability or caring for someone with a disability to those who provide services in the area.


The City recently hosted two community forums which provided an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to share their experiences and views on accessibility and inclusion in the City of Belmont. The findings from the community forums and a consultation survey will inform the actions for the new plan, which will be shared for public comment later this year.

Access and Inclusion Map 



To make the City as accessible as possible for all members of the community, an Access and Mobility Map has been created. The map provides access and mobility information about high demand areas within the City of Belmont.

​Changing Place



A changing place provides secure and clean facilities specifically designed for people who need space and assistance to manage their bathroom needs while in the community. To ensure City of Belmont residents and visitors to our City can access this service, a changing place was installed in the Belmont Oasis Leisure Centre in 2012.


The facility is located at Progress Way, Belmont WA 6104 and is available to members of the public during the centre’s opening hours. Contact the centre directly for further information on (08) 9277 1622.
