Te Tai Tokerau Regional Accessibility Plan Consultation

Joint accessibility plan for the Northland region

Making Te Tai Tokerau Accessible aims to make Northland a great place to work, live and play, including for those within the disability community, older adults, migrants, and families with young children.

The plan is being developed by the four Northland councils – the Northland Regional Council, Far North District Council, Kaipara District Council and Whangarei District Council.
